School at Home

Sep 20, 2020

Annette Whipple used to spend her days researching and writing non-fiction children’s books, alone in her quiet house. But since March, she’s been in the same situation many moms are facing: she’s working from home and her husband is working from home, while sharing the space with their three children.

In this episode, Annette and I chat about how her family made the decision to do school at home this year. The Whipples chose the “family option” to do virtual school through their local charter school. Now, they’re figuring out how to handle their careers with 3 kids on 3 different virtual schedules.

Annette is also a former teacher and has some great tips to make things go more smoothly. From note-taking, to planners, to modeling a positive attitude, she gives advice that will make the year easier, no matter what form of school at home you’re using.
