Kids Love Choosing Classes
I have to tell you that we love School
house Teachers.com! I have four students
this year, and we are currently using six
SchoolhouseTeachers.com classes (and
planning to use more). My children loved
being able to choose their classes, and
they’re enjoying the classes they chose.
Our favorite class is Children’s Literature
for Life; all four children (fifth – eleventh
grade) are doing it together. I also really
appreciate the content for special learners and have learned a lot about how to
help my dyslexic son. Thanks for all you

Music and Foreign Language Classes
from Home? Yes, Please!
The idea that for under $150 one child
could learn guitar and another could
learn violin . . . oh and everyone can take
an intro course to French and Spanish . . .
and I don’t even have to pack the diaper
bag and drag the baby out to lessons be-
cause we can do this all from home? Um
. . . yes, please!

Like a Trip in a Mustang!
I just signed up for our first initial
month. After four years with an online
public school format, last year with a
different free study guide, this is like
getting on the Pacific Coast Highway in
a Mustang with a tank full of gas, top
down. Wow! I am relieved, impressed,
and there is no imaginary anvil over my
head of, “Dear God, don’t let me make
my child fall far behind.” Thank you. I
have been praying about a curriculum
decision for a year now.

Makes My Job So Much Easier!
My family is enjoying the Schoolhouse
Teachers.com and it is very affordable for
the amount of information I use. I like
that I can point, click, teach! It makes my
job so much easier! God Bless!

Organized Home and Planned-Out
Wow! What a great resource for homeschoolers! Where we are at personally with our homeschooling journey, I
have found many things relevant, helpful, and interesting on Schoolhouse
Teachers.com. I especially love the
Home Economics posts (Malia Russell
is a favorite blogger of mine already!)
because they’re practical things that I
can use to make my house more organized so I have more time to spend with
the kids. I also really appreciate the
Pre-K activities as I am always looking
for new ideas to keep my younger children busy. I’m the type of person that
prefers having everything “spelled out”
to me (as opposed to creating my own
curriculum or lessons), so I like that
there are many ideas on the site that are
easy to understand, don’t cost a fortune
to implement, and don’t take a huge
amount of prep work. I look forward
to checking out the new content as it
comes up and using this great tool as
a way to better organize and plan my
