Homeschool Holiday

8-x-8-mini-logo.jpg

Christy is a homeschool mom in California. She didn't send her 3 "bugs" to school because she knew no one would be a better teacher than she is. (Christy tends to be a bit over the top) She was also terrified, quite frankly. Christy didn't want her kids to call her "mom" all day, and it was really awkward to have them call her "Mrs. Gandara" - so during their first week of school, the kids and Daddy brainstormed together and came up with a special teacher name just for the Happy Hive (then the Gandara Bug Academy). - Mrs. Crabtree... the name comes from the teacher in the Little Rascals television show.

The best "curriculum" the Happy Hive Homeschool ever used was off the cuff vs textbooks. One year we based everything we did on the "Holiday of the Day". It was an amazing year full of learning and memories. The curriculum I offer is dedicated to helping you use such Holiday learning in your educational endeavors. Christy was also a classroom teacher in California, holding a valid California Credential and teaching in multiple grades K-8, with the emphasis on grades 3-5 for the majority of her 19 year career. She has experience working in both public and private schools.

Christy now works with families who are Homeschooling their children. She provides support to those who withdraw from public, private or charter schools as well as those who wish to home educate continuously from birth. Christy genuinely believes that every human learns differently, personal connections matter and that curriculum should fit the student, not the standards. Christy strives to allow those guiding philosophies to thrive in whatever educational environment a family chooses for them.
