This starts our 6th year with Everest Academy. Gianna's path to homeschooling was a blessing from God to help me find the perfect match with Deb Spradlin and Everest. Gianna has always been gifted in many ways, but allowing us to choose the curriculum, social, and learning opportunities outside the realm of a standard classroom is what we needed. What Gianna has experienced would never have been accomplished without the freedom to choose a schedule that allows for Gianna's illnesses. This has been a life of learning for her and a connection for me that would have been lost in public school. She has won an Art contest from National Geographic Calendar, Science Fair from Currclick.com, and a Blue Ribbon for her incredible horse drawing at the Shelby County Fair. Her most cherished gift is being able to be a volunteer at the Birmingham Zoo. Gianna's love of animals makes everyone at the zoo recognize her dedication and drive to succeed. She will become a Biologist/ Elephant handler thanks to us being able to learn at our pace and environment. Thank you Everest for making this possible.
If you have a homeschooling story to tell and are enrolled in Everest, please send it along with a picture (not required) to Deb Spradlin at firstname.lastname@example.org. I truly love learning all about you.
