I left my award winning teaching career to become a homeschool mom and remote ESL teacher
I just finished an exhausting week at school and watched other teachers purposefully do things to sabotage their peers for personal gain.
I was emotionally drained and done with the daily experience I was having outside of my classroom door.
So, I had a choice. Stay there and become dull and miserable too, or make a change.
I had this crazy idea that I could be my own boss.
But the question was…how?
Enter direct sales.
Constant human motivation and drama.
NOT my cup of tea.
So, onward I went…..
I had this incredible idea, to start a business, blog, and YouTube Channel.
The question was what was I going to talk about.
Well, it’s important that when you’re doing something of solitude like building a brand online, that you pick something you’re passionate about.
I am passionate about teaching and love technology.
So, I decided to start teaching online with VIPKid and I teach other teachers how to expand their teaching beyond the conventional classroom, too!
Then, as I began to grow within the VIPKid platform and had more time on my hands during the day, I found myself questioning why we were paying to send our children to private school.
Having a Christan education was a non-negotiable for us, so public school was out.
But, you know what I found?
I found myself desperately wanting to mold my own children.
To walk through the emotional, phsyical, and spiritual growth with them.
I found myself asking them about their days and getting 1 word answers.
I tried open-ended questions with no avail.
Then, a friend a neighbor was planted in my life that homeschools.
I had NEVER considered it before because I thought it would be so hard.
This person has no idea they influenced me because we never talked about it until I approached her for more information.
Now, a few months later, here I am.
Living my best life, teaching my children, and thanking God for opening this stubborn momma’s eyes and heart to what I consider the greatest blessing – molding our children.
