There has never been a better time to consider homeschooling your children.
Like several other homeschooling veterans in the community, we feel it is our duty to help others, regardless of what homeschool coop program one chooses.
Over the past 7 years, we have found several good local coops to get involved with, one of which was the MARK Coop that closed down with the retirement of it’s Director. With this closure, and the uptick in interest involving homeschooling, I was determined to do something. In fact, I had a vision of someday running a homeschool coop, and to my surprise, Andi and her friend Terri were already discussing co-directing it, so the pieces began to fall into place! God was making a way for this to happen.
A few weeks later, a Board of Directors was formed and the name Texoma Christian Homeschool Coop was adopted.
The new Board moved quickly on creating (Thank you Catherine) and disseminating (Thank you Andi) an Interest Survey which returned some very positive results within the first 48 hours. Early results confirm there is certainly no shortage of interest in homeschooling, and we are in a position to offer another great option for the community!
Once more results are tallied, we will have a better idea of what size and type of location we will need. Letters and emails are being prepared and sent out to prospective host churches.
Meanwhile, the vice presidency vacancy on our area Homeschool Association (HEAT – Home Educators Across Texoma) had been on my mind for some time. After much prayer and discussion, along with our successful formation of our own new coop, it was finally time to seek the nomination to serve with HEAT. And so it came to pass, June 8, 2022.
Now the real work begins. We will be updating the community soon!
