Why these classes got started
Saleena received her Bachelor’s degree in Child and Adolescent Studies and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at California State University, Fullerton. She decided to transition from teaching in a public school setting to becoming a stay at home mom when she had her first child in 2014.
As her daughter got older and Saleena had more children, it became clear staying home was where she wanted to be. She starting homeschooling her preschooler in 2018, and has loved it ever since.
Saleena noticed a lack of creativity and hands-on learning within the walls of traditional schooling, and knew other parents felt the same. After speaking with other homeschool moms about their struggle with teaching topics she loved, she felt called to start Homeschooling Homestead.
Here, she can share her love of teaching about the world and how it works (science), as well as discovering the people in it and why it’s important to know what they did (history). The best part? Students will get to exercise their creativity by using various art mediums to display their knowledge.
This learning approach is engaging, can be quite messy at times, and always fun. No teaching out of textbooks over here! Creating. Building. Experimenting. Learning. Growing. Exploring.
