Making Math Easy

Dr. Don Crawford is a veteran classroom teacher and Special Ed teacher of many years, who developed the Rocket Math products to aid his students in mastering the four basic math operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. He ultimately offered it to homeschooling families and they have experienced tremendous success and satisfaction! Dr. Don developed his former print formats into online, digital formats that can be downloaded and used immediately. He also offers an online Math Game version that takes advantage of the brain’s fertility in learning information in a fun setting requiring 10-12 repetitions of a fact to make a brain pattern versus 400 repetitions required in a rote setting. Feel free to contact Dr. Don with your questions and for guidance in teaching your child math. www.rocketmath.com • 503-298-8656 • don@rocketmath.com

Working From Home

Working From Home

April 16, 2020

Hello and thank you for joining us on the Go Home Podcast. Today’s topic is Working From Home. The Gig work environment has created more working from home than ever. We will shed light on the good and the bad of not having to leave home for employment.

During our 26 years of producing homeschool publications, the Homeschool Almanac 2000-2001 and 2002-2003 by Prima Publishing and 11 conferences, we have worked from home most of the time, with a few offices sprinkled throughout that period. We also homeschooled our son for his entire school years, so the three of us had to get along and work together as best we could. Prior to having the company, I, Michael, worked outside of home for many years, so there was period of adjustment for all of us when I began working from home.

Today, we will speak with three people who work from home. First is Jeffrey Oakar, https://www.jeffreyoakarphotography.com a wedding photographer in Denver, Colorado, with a wife and two-year-old son, all of whom are home all of the time. Jeffrey does 90% of his work at home, editing photos and compiling wedding albums. During the Covid-19 lockdown, he is home 24/7.

Valerie Schuetta is a veteran elementary school teacher in Phoenix, Arizona. She is at home because of the Covid-19 situation and discusses some of the ways she tries to replicate her students’ classroom experience remotely.  She also discusses that fact that many parents tell her how their children miss attending school.

Third, we have Haley Dreis, https://haleydreismusic.com a performing singer/songwriter in Los Angeles, who works for Tinder, the popular dating app. Normally, Haley works one day per week from home, but because of Covid-19, she is working from home exclusively.

We hope these three interviews will provide you with useful insight to apply to your own situation!

Let us begin!

Martin and Carolyn Forte, founders of Excellence in Education, (EIE), the largest homeschool book store and resource center in California, are true pioneers of homeschooling. Carolyn was a classroom teacher for 5 years, which convinced her to homeschool her own children. The Forte girls have grown into successful parents and professionals in their own right. Mom, Carolyn, has developed a complete curriculum using games as the medium of study. She is a philosophical well-spring, with new thoughts and observations at least weekly! If you live in Southern California, visit their store in Monrovia, just off the 10 Freeway and spend a few hours!
