Homeschool Consulation- A new service at Yellow House Book Rental

Posted by Michelle Osborn on

Homeschooling can be very challenging, even frightening, to a parent new to educating their children at home. Even veteran homeschool parents come across new challenges. We all need some guidance every now and then.

I am very passionate about homeschooling and love sharing what I have learned during my 20 plus years of teaching my four children at home. How may I help you today?

Mamas, You Are Moving Mountians!
