That’s OK! Not every school teacher teaches every subject! For the elementary grades, a textbook with a teachers guide will give you the structure and the teaching tools that you need. When your child reaches high school, that can be the time to call on subject specialists to help you out! You can reach out to your friends, family, faith community, homeschool groups, local networks, and online communities to meet your child’s needs in a unique and personalized way. For an added boost to your confidence, keep in mind that homeschooling uniquely melds two of the strongest predictors of academic achievement: parental involvement and one-on-one learning.
