Co-Ops: To Join or Not offers insight into why you might join a co-op as well as the benefits and drawbacks of choosing a co-op for your homeschool.
Before I was a mother, I worked full-time in the public schools as a science specialist. Now that I am a homeschool mom, I coordinate numerous co-ops and group activities for our local homeschool community. I love working with youth – particularly middle school aged students. I have recently returned to the public school part time, working as a substitute teacher a few days each month.
