Hi! I'm Meredith,
The Teaching Mama.
I go by many other names too. Honey, Mom, Mama, Aunt Meredith, Teacher Meredith... I could probably keep going. Over the years of raising a family, homeschooling, and teaching online, those names have all run together. I wouldn't be over exaggerating to say that teaching is my life! My passion has grown beyond just educating children. My passion has become helping moms (and dads!) reclaim their role as their child's primary teacher. It flows beyond that into helping teachers find ways to pursue their passion outside of a traditional classroom. I hope you find encouragement here.
I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and I was a public school teacher for several years before staying home with my own children. When my oldest started to get closer to school age, my husband and I knew we were going to be homeschooling. I quickly learned that homeschool is not doing school at home. Homeschooling is a lifestyle. After a while, and a lot of trial and error, I began mentoring other moms on their homeschooling journey. We talked about everything from the state requirements, to curriculum, to setting reasonable expectations on ourselves and our children. Recently I have branched out into the world of online education and it has renewed my passion. I am now helping others succeed in teaching online and if you are interested I would love to help you get started too!
Grab yourself a cup of coffee and stay awhile!
