Homeschool Our Way is the go-to podcast for moms of color who are interested in homeschool, but need help getting started.

***************

Is your child’s school just NOT providing the kind of educational experience you envisioned for them? Are they not challenged enough, or are they possibly struggling to keep up? Would you like to see more representation of Black and brown faces in your child’s classroom?

Are you ready to start doing school YOUR way, but you have no idea where to start?

Don’t worry - you’re in the right place!

I’m Elan Page, and I’m so excited you’ve found the Homeschool Our Way podcast. I’ve made it my mission to help moms of color get started with their homeschool journey with clarity and confidence, and I want YOU to become another success story!

Just a few years ago, I was exactly where you are now: I realized that no one was going to care more about the success of my children than I would. So I began to take a more assertive role in leading my kids’ education, and that ultimately led us to homeschool.

I know that the most daunting part of the homeschool journey is just getting started, and my #1 goal is to teach you everything I know to help you start your homeschooling journey successfully.

Inside this podcast, you’ll hear from experts who will share information about...

1) Curriculum resources you can use
2) Learning options that will work best for your child
3) Ways to structure your homeschool that work best for your family
4) And how you can nurture your precious Black and brown children in a safe, supportive atmosphere

Our family has found success in our homeschool experience, and I want that for ALL families of color who are interested in a nontraditional education route for your children. It’s time to do Homeschool Our Way!
