Homeschooling in Alberta

with Julie Spackman

Hi! My name is Julie.

We started homeschooling at the end of February, 2016. At the time, our three daughters were in grades 2, kindergarten, and preschool. Our reasons for pulling out abruptly to home educate are a long story, but at the end of the day, home education has been the best decision we've ever made for our family.

As a mom, I had never planned to homeschool. I was that mom that always had my kids to school 10 minutes before the bell in order to "maximize" my alone time. No joke. I started working towards a second degree when our youngest was 2, eagerly looking forward to the time when she would be in school with her sisters.

Now, many years later, teaching my kids is my favorite part of the day. I love learning WITH my girls. I also teach music lessons one afternoon a week, work towards my degree online, and work from home building websites from scratch.

Actually, I have lots of favorite things.

Ever since COVID19, I've had a lot of people asking me about homeschooling, and especially about homeschooling in Alberta, so I decided to put this website together to help my friends.

I hope this website helps you.
