“Me? Homeschool?” That was the question I asked seven years ago when my husband approached me about the possibility of teaching our children. My uncertainty was caused by a learning disability I struggled with all through my school years.
But dyslexia has taught me more than I thought possible. I never anticipated that dyslexia would provide me with gifts that could benefit other people—even our own children. Since both of them are showing signs of minor dyslexic behavior, I am able to show and teach them visually how to overcome some of these struggles and move forward. I am also designing a curriculum specifically for dyslexic students that integrates art with other subjects.
Homeschooling is no longer a question of “can I do it?”, but “how can I use what I know to help our children and my homeschool community?” Never underestimate how your struggles can benefit others.
