We had open house at our homeschool co op this week. As of today, I have 16 paying students registered for classes. I am so excited!!!
As this last month of summer break has dwindled towards the end. I have been filled with remorse at having committed so much of my time to teaching especially spread across the week so long weekends won’t really be an option. But I knew it was the right decision financially as it truly will pay the way for all my kiddos classes and that is a HUGE financial burden lifted.
But as I got to mingling with the other mom/teachers I could see the passion in them. And as the families and kiddos started trickling in, I felt that passion rise in me. I am so excited to get to be a small part of these kids lives and teach something that I truly LOVE. And I’m really grateful for the support this particular co op gives to the teachers…complete control over our curriculum and our classrooms.
So while I have spent hours this summer prepping my classes and content, now that I have met most of my students I will spend this weekend revising my expectations and class schedule and assignments.
I won’t make any money on this per se, but 1) the tuition from my students is fully covering the cost of my kids’ co op classes and 2) I will have 3 full prepared classes if I ever chose to teach these classes again – Multi-level Geometry, Intro to Computer Programming and Advanced Computer Applications.
Classes start next week!
