One of my Covid hobbies has been sewing, and while I quilted before the pandemic, I have ventured much more into knit fabric and clothes. I recently made my first Homeschool Mom shirt. I included the phrase “Teacher and Manager of Mischief” as a nod to Harry Potter. Don’t we all wish we all had a little bit of magic in us to help manage the mischief and clean up the messes in our homes? While I haven’t learned any magic tricks, I have acquired some super powers over the years as I listen to the advice and stories of those ahead of me on the homeschooling road. I want to invite you to join me at the Homeschool Super Hero event to hear from more awesome veteran homeschoolers as they help us start our year off right with the tools we can use all year long with our families.
3 Super Powers I have acquired as a homeschool mom
The Power of reading to teach all my children at once
When I started homeschooling I had two full programs for two school age kids and a toddler wanting attention. I tried to schedule time with each child to do their work and then switch. It was a lot of materials and even more content to keep track of. Because I talked to friends and explored at conventions I went to, I discovered the Morning Time Model. We are starting our 4th year using it, and operate as more of a one room school house now, where everyone learns together as much as we can. Jamie was my Super Hero who shared her experience and led me to switch.
The Flexibility of Elastigirl to change what doesn’t work
My kids don’t fit in they typical school box. We tried it and it didn’t fit our family. I have discovered the flexibility of Elastigirl in our homeschool is the ability to choose programs that fit the unique needs of each of my kids. I have the flexibility to stop using a program that doesn’t fit my child and find something else. We have tried multiple math programs before finding the right fit for each one. We are still trying different Language Arts programs to find the sweet spot for each child. Joann is the Super Hero who introduced me the right fit for Lynn.
Spidey Sense to Know when to put the books away and just be mom
As Teacher/Moms we wear different hats at different times. But at the end of the day the most important thing is the relationship we have with our children. It’s not important that they didn’t finish their math page. I have developed a Spidey Sense of when my kids are whining because they are kids and when they really are at their limits and a picture book on the couch together is more important than the scheduled lesson. Colleen is the Super Hero who reminds me to put my relationship with my kids before the book learning.
These 3 Moms have shared their homeschool stories with me and become my super heroes. The stories they shared with me make my homeschool and family better. This is why I’m excited to share with you about the Homeschool Super Hero event that’s coming up to give you the opportunity to listen to over 30 veteran homeschool parents share their experience with you.

We know what it’s like to be in the trenches as a homeschool Mom. Sometimes you need a little encouragement or a few fun tricks from knowledgeable homeschool parents who have real experience balancing school & family with cooking, cleaning & chauffeuring, or even working outside the home.
