055. Homeschooling Multiples, Transitions, Balance, & Encouragement with Alisha Miller

Encouragement, Passion, Variety, and Beauty

The lovely Alisha Miller is here with us today. She is so encouraging. This conversation feels like sitting down with a super sweet friend to talk about all things homeschool. By the end, you’ll feel comforted, inspired, and motivated to move forward with homeschooling knowing you can implement her encouraging ideas. Alisha gives us specific examples of how she homeschools with multiples, how she meets her children where they are, and how she overcomes homeschool fears (fear rises up in all of us from time to time). We also talk about community, flexibility, and so much more! This is an episode for the heart…that also happens to contain practical tips. That’s so Alisha.

Alisha’s Bio: Alisha Miller is raising and homeschooling four daughters in northern Indiana. She has a passion for curating a curriculum that covers a wide feast and is inclusive of all people. She loves learning alongside her daughters on this journey. As an editor and writer for the Wild + Free magazine, she gets to combine her love for both English and homeschooling.
