I will be homeschooling my teen for the first time next year. Long time coming but I'm having
trouble finding where all the homeschooling groups are, how many Missoula has, what
they're called and where/ when they meet. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I'm considering the k12 model because of the extra teacher support does anyone have
experience with k12? What are your thoughts and if you think you know a better program
please feel free to advize... this is all very new to me. thanks weemom3
Welcome to MDC!
I live in WY but we do k12. My dd is only in second grade; the parents with older kids (middle school or high school) that I've met who are doing K12 seem happy with it. I would suggest checking out some of the sample lesson plans online at their site and see what you think of them (and what your dd thinks of them).
Finding homeschool groups takes some detective work. Other than searching online, the best way to find a homeschooling group, I'd think, would be to talk with the children's librarian at the public library. Where I live, the librarians know the homeschooling families pretty well - and can let you know who to contact to investigate groups.
I'd imagine there are a few different homeschooling groups to choose from in Missoula. Good luck!
