* against the forceful tide
* growth under the surface (found here)
I was reading an ebook the other night by Connie Stults called Finding Your Vision: Beginning (or Continuing) Your Homeschool Journey with the End in Mind. I found it very thought-provoking to work through her questions.
In a nutshell, my desire for homeschooling Raccoon and Kitty is to help them love God, love themselves, and love others.
But how are we going to get there? This is where I find picture phrases helpful.
Against the forceful tide - develop a strong sense of self-worth and self-knowledge, value diversity, be hardworking, inventive, creative, confidant, strive for excellence, unafraid to be different, bold, to speak against injustice and to be passionate.
Growth under the surface - I want each of my children to be able to grow their own way in their own time, learning as a lifestyle, every day with the end in mind
The kind of teacher I want to be? Someone who believes in their potential and is confident that we will arrive together.
