Steph & Cooper – 1996

At 4:00 PM this afternoon, May 10th, 2014, our second son Cooper received his homeschool diploma along with 21 other homeschool graduates from the Upstate area of South Carolina. The ceremony was all about these 21 students, and rightly so—their hard work and discipline these last 13 years of schooling; their accomplishments in academics, music, sports, community service, leadership and other extra-curricular activities; and those bright future plans that are no longer on the distant horizon but are about to materialize.

There were testimonies and remembrances of co-op teachers, grandparents, siblings, youth pastors, parents and other friends and mentors. It was a great time of recognition and celebration—that’s what you do to put the capstone on this portion of a wall you’ve labored on for all these years. A similar scene will be played out at hundreds of other locations across the country over the next few weeks—homeschool co-ops, Christian schools, private and public high schools. Graduates will take front and center stage for good reason. But as I’ve worked through my own emotions these last few weeks one thing keeps crowding out the other thoughts in my mind: what about mom?

Welcome to the HomeWorks by Precept blog! My name is Sharon Fisher, The TeacherMom, and I will be your host on this blog as we travel together through the journey of homeschooling our children.

First, let me explain who we are and why we want to reach out to you. Precept Marketing Group is a Christian educational resource company that was co-founded in 2002 by the owner and president of Graco Children’s Products. It was created with the purpose of offering the best in quality educational materials and services to Christian schools. The leadership at Precept also recognized from the beginning that homeschooling parents need assistance in securing those same materials, so they created HomeWorks By Precept—a division completely devoted to meeting the educational needs of homeschool families.

Over the past 12 years, HomeWorks has grown to include more than 200 consultants across the US and into Canada, and offers families quality educational products and services. Our consultants are homeschool parents, so they’ve been where you’ve been. They’ve taught BJU Press curriculum, and they are here to help you. Our consultants do more than just assist with your ordering needs—they’re dedicated to partnering with and encouraging you in your homeschooling all year long.

Doing a better job connecting with our homeschool families (and those that should be!)

The homeschool community has increasingly used the internet to learn about home schooling; share ideas; research and compare education aids and curriculum; keep up with legislation that could harm or benefit homeschooling; do every kind of school-work related research for students; and network with other like-minded families. As an organization dedicated to assisting families with homeschooling, HomeWorks needs to be more proactive in using technology to connect with our current customers and reach the thousands of new families that are joining the home school ranks every year.

Over the last year we have been working behind the scenes to grow our knowledge base about web design, analytics, blogging and social media. While digging in, we have discovered some extremely talented people on our team in addition to the outside specialist assisting us on this journey.

It has been said that the best way to learn a foreign language is to immerse yourself in that country and culture. I believe the same holds true with technology; so in order to better understand what we need to do and what our customers would like to see from us I decided to jump in and start a blog.
