School at Home

Nov 16, 2020

There are a lot of options out there for families this year, but few are taking the same approach as Michelle Marine’s. Her four children are taking part in four different types of school this year. She has a junior attending school face-to-face full time, a 7th grader that is homeschooled, and a 9th grader and 5th grader in “virtual school.”

As a former homeschooler, she knew what that entails, and said, “When faced with the prospect of homeschooling again, I thought, ‘No, no, no, no. That ship has sailed.’” However, she found out quickly that using the school’s online curriculum was not a good fit for all of her children, and quickly pivoted to other approaches, including homeschool for one of her kids.

In this episode, we talk about what led to the Marine family’s hybrid approach to school, and the things she’s had to “let go of” (like PE) in order to focus on what’s most important to her and her family.
