Homeschool Unrefined

Oct 11, 2021

This is the first episode in our "How We Homeschool" series. We'll be talking with different homeschool parents all season to hear about their philosophies, insights, and experiences. 


Tanya from Project Happy Home is with us to share her story and insights as a doctor-lawyer turned secular homeschooling mom of 3 kids. We chat curriculum, routines, and her perspective on finding community in person and online. We really love how Tanya doesn't let labels limit her homeschool style. We have MORE with Tanya available when you join our $5 Squad on Patreon!


Find Tanya and Project Happy Home on YouTube and Instagram.


This episode is sponsored by Elephants and Algebra. Elephants and Algebra offers one-on-one K-12 math tutoring that meets your child where they are.
