You Know You’re a (Homeschool) Teacher When…
- You teach in your pajamas a couple of days a week.
- Instead of reprimanding your students for daydreaming when you catch them looking out the window, you encourage everyone to head outside for an impromptu science lesson about that unusual bird you spotted in the driveway.
- Road trips become opportunities to teach geography and map-reading skills.
- Rewards for a job well done include lots of hugs and kisses.
- Nap time is an acceptable after-lunch activity for tired students, even if they’re not in kindergarten.
- Discussions about God, faith, and the Bible occur throughout the day, not just during “Bible” class.
- “Recess” means going outside to play as a family and spending time serving the neighbors.
- You find yourself “rotating” classes: reading takes place in the living room, math at the kitchen table, science in the front yard, language arts in the laundry room, etc.
- School hours can “flex” with work schedules, family activities, and health status.
- At the end of the day, your students say, “I love you, Mom! I’m glad you’re my teacher.”
