Being born and raised in Chicago, I have met some wonderful people and been a part of many a neighborhood meal. The relationships I have built as a parent and a teacher make me proud to be a Chicagoan.
Being a parent, you have to make a lot of important decisions. When I had to decide on the best kindergarten choice for my son, I took into consideration all of my experiences in education, as well as the advice others had given me. I knew my son had special needs but was capable of being in a regular classroom. When my hopes of finding the perfect school to fit his needs were not realized, I decided the best choice would be to homeschool him and figure out how to keep a roof over my head later.
Two days after I decided to homeschool my son, I received a call from a K12 representative. He told me that there was a new school opening up a hybrid blended program in Chicago and asked if I would be interested in learning more.
