First, a quick introduction for those who are new. This website is generally run by Catherine Jaime, “Mom of 12.” I homeschooled my own children for almost 35 years (often while teaching classes for dozens of other homeschooled students). In May 2016 our youngest graduated and in December 2016 we chose to close the physical location of Creative Learning Connection (a homeschool resource center I had owned and run for almost 14 years), bringing to a close that portion of our homeschool ministry.
But my ministry to homeschoolers predated the opening of our resource center (since from the first day I walked into a homeschool group with 5 years of experience, I was the veteran homeschooler) and our hope is that it will continue beyond the closing of those doors.
As I move happily into my “retirement years,” I hope to write more and travel more. (Those who have known me for any amount of time often question how I can do more of either of those – but I’m managing! For more information on my writing career, you can see the blog post I wrote for my author’s website: Becoming a Full-Time Author and one of my many travel posts there, Travel, Travel and More Travel.
Even in retirement the homeschool community is still a vital part of who I am and what is important to me. I have spent over half of my life as a member, after all!
