When you homeschool in a city named for a great American patriot, it’s only natural to love teaching and learning history. That’s exactly the case for Caroline Belliveau of Revere, Massachusetts, who has homeschooled her two daughters with Alpha Omega Publications ever since her oldest daughter started kindergarten.
With six years of homeschooling experience under her belt, Caroline Belliveau took a few minutes to answer five questions about why she loves homeschooling and using Monarch curriculum.
Q: Why did you choose to homeschool instead of enrolling your children into either a public or private school?
A: We value staying home as a family and being able to work our values into the curriculum. I’m able to give my daughters one-on-one attention, and we’re able to take school at our own pace. It makes school less stressful and more enjoyable.
Q: Why did you decide to use Monarch as opposed to other curriculums available?
A: I knew I wanted to homeschool, so I Googled homeschooling and AOP was the first company to come up. I looked around a little, but I made up my mind pretty much in the beginning. AOP has a really, really good support system, and Monarch offers a large variety of subjects.
Q: What do you like best about Monarch online homeschooling curriculum?
A: The flexibility is probably my favorite part. We’re able to do a lot more. We can go to a museum on a regular weekday, then make up the school day another day. There have also been times we’ve gone on trips and they’ve been able to do that, which they wouldn’t have been able to do in a regular school.
Q: Do your girls have a favorite subject they like to learn?
A: My girls really like science and history. Those subjects are my favorite, too. They were my favorites in school.
Q: What’s the best way to learn more about Monarch?
A: One of the most exciting things about Monarch is that everyone has an opportunity to do a 30-day trial of Monarch to see if you fall in love with it as much as we did. All you have to do is visit DiscoverMonarch.com and use the promo code MON30TTD.
