I am a certified teacher with seven years' experience in the public school system. I am a veteran homeschool parent who has graduated one child. I am currently home educating my younger son, who is a senior this year. Also, I have taught high school Literature & Mythology classes at homeschool co-ops over the past several years. I have led both my children and other students in discussions of sensitive topics on numerous occasions. I also teach workshops for adults in the areas of literature, mythology, and poetry.
0No supplies are necessary; however, I will list suggested supplemental materials such as books, websites, etc.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be discussions of horror, which will include the topic of violence and sometimes sexual references. All discussions will be handled in a sensitive and age-appropriate manner, with ample time given to students to share their thoughts.
