My name is Shona, mother of 4, small business owner and now home schooling teacher!
We have been homeschooling for 6 months now, so still learning every day! We live in sunny Brisbane, and home school our youngest Hadley. Hadley is an extraordinary out of the box kind of boy who simply did not suit regular schooling - or should we say regular schooling did not suit him!
Hadley has Asperger's Syndrome and has the most amazing mind! He amazes us every day with his enthusiasm for life and learning!
Home schooling was a an overnight decision for us. Last year during the September holidays we just suddenly realized we could no longer send him, or indeed, no longer wanted to send him to school. His brilliant mind was not being challenged, his individual needs were not being met, and he was drowning in a system that is over-crowded, under-funded and under-trained.
Since September we have watched him blossom into a happy, carefree joyous child. His enthusiasm for learning astounds us daily, and through this wonderful group of amazing parents and children, we have made some of the most lovely friends!
Join us on our journey! We will share home schooling tips, local events and chances to meet new people and make friends, as well as free resources, page links and other helpful information.
