{Yes, I Work and Homeschool!} Meet Caitlyn





Tell us about your work, Caitlyn.

I volunteer between 30 and 40 hours a week. For my paid work as a freelance writer, homeschool blogger, and transcriptionist, I average 10-20 hours a week.

Tell us why you homeschool.

We made the choice for a variety of reasons, but what it really boils down to is this: the public school system failed my husband and myself when we were children. Also, our children are gifted, and our local school system (like many others) comes up short serving that population.

What are some of the challenges you face balancing working while homeschooling? What are some of the delights?

Finding time for it all. Also, finances are an issue, especially since I spend more time per week at my unpaid volunteer position than I do at my actual paid employment.

{Yes, I Work and Homeschool!} Meet Cathy



Tell us about the work you do, Cathy. 

I work between 30-40 hours a week working as a Health Information Technology consultant.


Tell us about why you chose to homeschool. 

I homeschool my 8th grade son. I chose to homeschool to put him in a more positive learning environment.


What are some of the challenges you face balancing working while homeschooling? What are some of the delights?

Most responsibilities fall on me: cooking, cleaning, homeschool, etcetera. The blessing is that despite the craziness we can follow our own schedule!
