Parents And Teachers Encouraged To Attend The Curriculum Event


Everyone has their stereotypes when it comes to homeschoolers....raising goats, little house on the prairie braids, awkward conversationalists. Yet, here we are with everyone around the world finding themselves in this same style of education.

First off, I would like to give a shout out to all the public school teachers and commend them for their extra effort and time that they invested these last few months. I have the upmost respect for them. They had to learn and grow together with their students, and quickly figure out a way to help children in our area in the midst of a world crisis. Furthermore, in my opinion, every parent must do what is best for his/her children when it comes to education. Whether one chooses public or homeschool does not indicate that one is more superior than the other. There are so many great teachers in our area and I am grateful for their time and passion for teaching. I feel that this is a time to come together and see the beauty in both paths of education and find a way to glean from one another.

That being said, I am pleased to announce “The Curriculum Event,” held on Wednesday, July 15, at 10 a.m. at Glasgow Evangelical Church. There will be tables set up by subject, where you can bring any of your curriculum and let others see the options you use. It will be a place that you can physically see a copy of curriculum before investing. Countless companies have been contacted and many resources, catalogs and giveaways will be shared for this one-day event. Local Usborne dealer Tori Beer will also be available with many books and resources available for purchase.

If you would like to bring anything to show other educators and parents, please label your material so it can easily be picked up at the end of the event. Also, there will be tables labeled as “free,” “to borrow,” and “for sale.” Many times curriculum is purchased and it may have not worked for your child’s learning style, but it is still a good curriculum. It might be fun to have a place to share these purchases and even sell it if you choose.

This event is for anyone to come and is not limited to homeschoolers only. I would love to have public school teachers and educators present with curriculum that they enjoy, so we can all see options when it comes to the coming year. We all can learn from one another and come together for the betterment of our children.

Hope to see you there!
