I have homeschooled my my 9 children for 25 years, substitute taught for 6 years and taught on Outschool for 4 years. I have taught a wide range of subjects from grades K-8. I am familiar with and have used a variety of different curriculum.  The curriculum suggested in the Materials section is the curriculum I found to be homeschool friendly with most of my children, but not all.  I have taught many classes in public, private and community classrooms.
