STUDENT LIFE

Student life in our learning community puts our students in the center of their learning. They are the designers and masters of their education, which in turn makes them the owners of their future. As parent/educators, we simply help to mediate the process.  Inclusiveness is one of the core principals that NM Homeschool has been built upon, this is inclusion of both students and parents as educators.

 

It is important to develop a sense of community where a child feels a sense of belonging because it is in these environments their creativity can shine and learning is no longer a chore but a fun activity. We offer several classes that are program structured for students to complete at their own pace but the core curriculum we teach our children is developed by learning the different types of learning and what is best for each child.

At New Mexico Homeschool, we understand that each of our children have individual wants and needs and that learning can only be fostered from a feeling of mutual respect and compassion. We maintain those values in everything we do. The 21st century demands change and no longer should students be the receiver of an education created by adults, we want our education to be redesigned to allow for a much greater focus on what and how the students are wanting to learn and base our teaching methods on the needs and strengths of each student.

We are committed to creating an educational atmosphere that keeps our children engaged and makes school time an exciting experience, each and every day.

We want our children to understand everyone is unique and has a place in this world. 

New Mexico Homeschool is growing, we are being noticed and it is because we all share the same goals. We are all parents, we are all educators whose sole intention is to make sure our children learn the skills necessary to help them succeed.  We do not see success as a competition, we rejoice together, we are not trying to use the group we built as a way to get rich, we are all volunteers.

We are creating a pedagogy of inclusive teaching and learning practices that are project and competency-based; this requires our children to own their learning. These methods are intended to empower students to tackle challenges and take on experiences that may be new to them, while keeping learning fun and dynamic.

Participation is Easy

Let's face facts education in New Mexico isn't exactly the pinnacle of education standards, in fact, I believe our state ranks #50. That doesn't mean that our children can't receive the education they need in order to succeed in life. When it comes to homeschooling New Mexico has left us with the bare minimum of a state statute skeleton to follow, which leaves us open to teach our children, the way we see fit.

 

Our group began as one single-family and it soon expanded into a group of families who share thoughts, ideas and course work with one another. The Covid pandemic was hard on our kids, who were stuck at home constantly, but we managed, by the use of the internet and ingenuity, our kids were ok. The new school year is upon us and we are entering it as a Homeschool Cooperative, which means we are a group of families who meet together and work cooperatively to achieve common goals. ...

All of our activities and classes are led by parents.

The Covid 19 pandemic ushered in a new era for all education establishments. The hybrid learning environment. Educators worldwide are having to learn how to manage the education of their students virtually. 

Luckily, I came prepared. Sign up for one of my many presentations (delivered thanks to Microsoft) that will help you unlock the potential you carry as an educator. 

Take a look at the curriculum choices you have as a member of NM Homeschool. It is true, for a pretty penny you can purchase any curriculum, however, our mission is to make sure that every family can access quality education without breaking the bank.

 

We take inclusion and innovation extremely seriously here and integrate these two concepts in everything we do. We offer our homeschooling parents, "Parents as Educator" course led by a certified Microsoft professional in order to unlock your technological potential.
