Support, mentoring, guidance and community for the homeschooling parent.
As parents we so often spend so much time and money trying to find the perfect curriculum or resources for our homeschool. What I've come to realize though is that WE are one of our homeschool's most valuable resources!
The Wonder School Mentorship is your opportunity to invest in yourself and your homeschool facilitator journey. When I grow and learn in community and under mentorship my growth is exponential! I want to provide that mentorship and community for you in this season. Whether you are using a purchased curriculum, are enrolled in an online school, are piecing together various curriculums, are developing your own homeschool plans, are unschooling or any mix of the myriad of home education options this program is designed to help you navigate homeschool life and put foundations and strategies in place as well as provide the support and community that will help you thrive.
There are so many things I wish I had known or worked through earlier in my homeschool journey. In this mentorship I will curate a growth journey. Rather than having to frantically search the interwebs for blogs, advice, ideas, inspiration, etc I will simplify the process and provide weekly mentoring videos on foundational practices, mentality shifts, logistics, inspiration, etc. Being a lifelong career educator one of my super powers is breaking concepts/ideas down into practical, actionable and manageable steps. Along with each video I'll provide actionable step to take. It can be that week or you can save it for when you're in a place to do it. It's up to you!
Videos will release every Wednesday!
All members will be added to a private Facebook group where we can grow our community and support one another. On Mondays I'll post a discussion prompt for us to engage each other with. This will be a great time to hear from one another and build relationship. Members are also encouraged to post questions, "wins", etc in the group.
On the 2nd Thursday of every month I'll post a Family Date Night Plan because I believe we can be really creative and fun with our low cost family dates! (I was a columnist for a local paper for a decade where I provided a family date every week so I've got loads of ideas!)
Record keeping for yourself and the school division can be a very simple process. I'll provide tips and a monthly check in for record keeping to help keep you on track and make your end of year reporting a breeze!
Every Friday I post a curated educational activity that you can do with your kids. These are tried and true and simple to execute.
Once a month I also send out a Self Care Prompt to help support you as you take on this audacious task of educating your children.
Due to the nature of this mentorship it will grow and change as we do. I love to adapt to the needs of the group and will choose content based on what is needed by the members. What is offered is subject to change but will always be communicated!
If you're joining after our launch date the previous video content will be detailed and available for purchase so you can go back and catch up on any content you were interested in. The first four modules will be provided with every new subscription as they are solid foundational practices.
In my years as a public school middle years teacher and now going into my 8th year of home education I have found that community makes all the difference. I hope you'll join our community and get the support you need to THRIVE as a home educator for however long you choose to pursue this lifestyle.
Monique's Wonder mentorship program has been a godsend for our family. I first stumbled across her Facebook account "Suddenly Homeschooling" during lockdown and have been following her posts ever since. When she announced that she was going to do a homeschool mentorship program I was definitely very curious. Her style has a very organic flow to it; a "no pressure", "no stress", "let's explore and learn" vibe. You can definitely tell she's put in her time as a public and homeschool teacher. The experience she brings and the endless tips have been amazing. She does monthly check ins and family date night prompts as well. Anyone who joins will absolutely benefit with her as a homeschool mentor. ~ Amanda
I highly recommend Monique as a resource for those of you looking for a mentorship program and an engaging community! Monique's suggestions and principles she shares in this program are solid. And she is very approachable too if you have questions. Worth checking out! ~ Amber
