What Home Educators Say

Homeschooling Downunder not only provides fantastic resources of great quality but Michelle also gives so much information and encouragement to homeschool families. Michelle has diligently and joyfully served the Australian home education community for many years and I have been very blessed by her dedication and commitment to others. Thanks Michelle and family!

Susan Priolo, Founder Aussie Homeschool

Hi Michelle, I just read your lovely email wishing me a Happy Mother’s Day. I so endorse your message of support. Homeschooling is so much more than education. What a privilege it is to be able to do this for my children, even if I came to it under such devastating circumstances. I just wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you have put into your homeschooling downunder site and now the Myhomeschool site. These sites are “pots of gold” and make our lives so much easier. It seems an appropriate time to say thank you and wish you a beautiful Mother’s Day as well. With appreciation.

I just want to tell you that I have spent not hours, but DAYS on your website. Yes, DAYS!!!! I have read and reread and reread every single word you have to say, and I’ve checked out ALL of your sample files, probably every single link ..I want to tell you that your website is achieving exactly what you have set out to achieve. You certainly are a blessing to the newly starting homeschooler.

Tanya D, Homeschool Educator, NSW

Hi Michelle, THANK YOU for the amazing resources you make available to others. I’ve just begun homeschooling this year, and into this coming term plan to embrace more of Charlotte Mason’s style with my kids (8,6,4,1). It was a little daunting to do this from the outset, but after a term together, I feel ready to relax into it more. Thanks for you time“.
