Can a working mom still homeschool? How do we prepare ourselves to begin the school year strong? How do you set a good school-year routine? Why is taking time out for ourselves as moms important for our homeschool? How can we do this and not feel the mom guilt?
If you’ve had one or more of these questions rolling through your mind, you are in the right place! Today I wanted to have a conversation about how to start strong for our homeschool year. Now, if you’re not a homeschooling mama, don’t tune out. Many of the things we talk about today relate to all moms as we try to navigate the new school year and create routines or systems that will work for our own families.

Teresa Wiedrick encourages homeschool families to do their homeschool thing with confidence, clarity, and vision. She is keenly aware of the intensity and demanding nature of this lifestyle as she’s been doing it for fifteen years with four kids.
Teresa is also an author, podcaster, and mentor: inspiring homeschool mamas to nurture themselves while they nurture their homeschool kids through her virtual homeschool mama retreats (in-person retreats coming next year!)
In her past life, she graduated from the University of Alberta with a BScN, worked in the perinatal units before her first daughter was born, and spent most of the past twenty-five years experiencing a mini-medical residency in chats with her husband after his emergency shifts and baby deliveries.
Teresa didn’t originally plan to homeschool, but when she did, her family spent seven years traveling to the Arctic, rural Kenya, rural Ghana, around Europe, Canada, and the States.
The past seven years, her family has settled into a charming, Kootenay mountain town in British Columbia where they’ve built a homestead, a goat barn, a chicken coop (for the Cluckingham Palace princesses), a doghouse for their Great Pyr puppy, Violet, and run a bed and breakfast.
