In the pictures are Larah Oswald age 10, Hunter Oswald age 8, and their mom Kami Oswald. This is our home classroom.
This is only the second year we have been homeschooling, but these are the best school days ever. Our children were attending public school. When I really sat down and started asking questions, I noticed that my 4th grader could not do any math, and my son in the second grade could not read. I was very concerned, so I went and spoke to the teachers and observed the classrooms. This is when I made the decision to homeschool. The teachers were not teaching, they sat the children in front of a T.V and expected the T.V to teach the children. I spoke to some of the teachers who actually told me it would be the best decision to homeschool. This surprised me. So here we are, and we are so very happy we made this decision. Our children are learning and are more self confident than ever before. Everest Academy has given us the opportunity to teach and grow closer to our children. Homeschooling may not be for everyone but for us it was one of the best decisions we ever made. I resigned from my corporate position so that I and my wife can teach. Thank you very much Everest Academy for being there for us.
