well, how about that...

Many months ago, I submitted a post to Blog Nosh Magazine, and then heard nothing. Yesterday I heard that they're publishing my post TODAY! I'm excited, but a little wigged out. (I know, I know, what a change.) It's a post I'm proud of, and I stand by it, but it did generate more than a little controversy the first time around, and now that I'm not blogging quite as regularly, I'm not sure I'm up for it this time.

But we shall see. Maybe no one will even notice.

The post is here, along with kind comments by the site's education editor.

I must have missed this the first time around. I'm so glad I caught it today, though. I was thinking about this very subject this morning. Part of my family comes from a teaching background. It can be difficult to know what to say in the face of those credentials that teachers have. I feel often unqualified despite our homeschooling success. I think, in the future, I will refer them here! Well spoken!

I remember that post from the first time around -- for me it was a very helpful, coherent explanation of some key differences between being a homeschooling parent and a teacher. Ideas sparked from that post still come up in conversation a lot with friends, mainly public schooling friends who say the "Oh, I could never do that," or who seem to get defensive about the differences between our choices. I think of that post as I try to navigate those conversations without seeming to say bad things about classroom learning or teaching. (I don't *think* bad things, but sometimes just pointing out the differences comes across as critical.)

Now you're going to have to start blogging more. ;)
