HappyLady Posted July 25, 2012 Share Posted July 25, 2012 I have yet to even start homeschooling (my DD is 4.5 and I'll be starting formally this fall with her) so this whole homeschooling thing is new to me. I've been lucky enough to find a local group of new-to-homeschooling moms to learn and grow with. The group decided to start a co-op and I was thrilled because I want my DD to learn subjects I'm weaker in (like art and such) from someone else and I also wanted to see how the other moms taught so I could get some pointers. Anyway, most of the moms were once teachers who decided to stay home with their children and teach them instead so they'll all be teaching classes in the field they were trained in. The co-op will be starting this fall and the "classes" have been decided, but they need to fill in some gaps and are asking for volunteers. I'd volunteer, but I don't know what I'd teach. :confused: And I don't yet feel comfortable enough teaching when I haven't even yet started to teach my own child! Plus, I have a fear of speaking in front of groups, even kids, so this is just not going the way I had hoped. Does anyone have any suggestions for subjects a newbie could teach? Or any words of encouragement because at this point I don't want to join if I'm going to feel uncomfortable with trying to teach other kids and speak in front of the whole group. :( Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
