I want to help you not only survive but THRIVE during this school year! I reached out to teachers and homeschooling mamas to collect the best tips, tricks and secrets. 

Transitioning into distance learning has been tough. Parents and children are having to adapt and overcome challenges. I am a firm believer that we can still make this a great school year. If something is not working for you, adapt, think outside of the box and work on making it better!

The kids miss their friends, they have trouble focusing on a screen and it’s a fight to get them to finish their work on time. I know that you are smart, determined and can achieve anything! The beginning of the school year may have gotten off to a rocky start, but with these tips you will be able to find your flow.
