10 Ways to Advance Your Homeschool Skills with Professional Development

Kelly was taking one of my free classes and explained her commitment to quality continuing education. She wrote, "I set time aside a minimum of 3 hours a week for my professional development which includes research, project planning, transcripts, etc."  

I can almost guarantee that Kelly will be successful. That's how I became successful, and how my kids earned two, full-tuition scholarships to their first-choice private university. I spent a minimum of 3 hours per week in Starbucks, waiting for my kids to finish their activities, while I learned how to homeschool high school. 

Guess what? You can be successful, too! Home educators can improve their knowledge, wisdom, skill, competence, effectiveness, and personal balance. All it takes is a commitment to professional development.

What is professional development?

  • Continuing education
  • On-the-job training
  • Career and vocational training
  • Professional learning and improvement
  • Professional growth and advancement

Think of it this way. You are a professional home educator.

You chose this career. You have made a commitment to educate your children at home. While statistically we are overwhelmingly successful at this endeavor, the reason is our intense commitment to our children. You can maximize your success with professional development.

10 Ways to Advance Your Homeschool Skills with Professional Development.

  1. Invest in your reputation and integrity.
  2. Understand your strengths.
  3. Set a strong example of work-life balance.
  4. Be a professional, not like a teacher.
  5. Diversify your skill set and learn about the next stage.
  6. Seek mentors.
  7. Network with others.
  8. Attend online conferences.
  9. Take new risks and move forward fearlessly.
  10. Set aside time for how-to-homeschool classes.

How can you do all 10 of those things while homeschooling AND caring for the home? The key is regular, short doses of information. Take self-paced learning classes that will enhance your homeschool skills. You can develop expertise in homeschooling high school with regular attention to specialized training classes with The HomeScholar.

My classes are like formal education on how to become a better home educator, but without formal coursework or tests. Each class includes workbooks to keep forever, that will improve confidence and competency and maximize the effectiveness of the online workshops.

Set aside time regularly to take my online workshops.
Learn at your speed. Just learn. Success will follow.
