    59. Wild & Wonderful Enrichment with Jodie Witmer

    59. Wild & Wonderful Enrichment with Jodie Witmer

    We’re excited to have Jodie Witmer, owner and founder of Wild & Wonderful Enrichment with us on the show today. Jodie started her career in education in the summers of her college years, working with kids in small groups. She graduated with a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Shepherd University. 


    When her son turned three, they started forest school, and she shares that it was their first introduction to homeschool. She went on to eventually enroll him in public kindergarten, but during his first grade year, she felt that they needed a transition.


    After attending a workshop, Jodie’s eyes were opened to so many educational possibilities & ideas. She began homeschooling her son, and wanted to open up a place for other homeschool families to bring their children for enrichment activities. The idea of Wild and Wonderful Enrichment was born.


    Wild and Wonderful Enrichment offers small groups, hands-on learning, and exploration of nature for homeschool students. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents who want their kids to get additional enrichment classes in addition to what they are already receiving in their homeschool education.


    Check out this episode for more information on this educational opportunity!

Thank you!

I moved here a year ago from Arizona and I am so glad I found your podcast and Facebook group everyone is always so helpful and I laugh every time you guys talk about how people waive for you to go first while driving or how it’s all I’m from this county cause AZ is the opposite and I have noticed it all. You guys give so much great information and resources. Thank you for all your hard work! My daughter starts with hope next year! 💜
