A Very Insightful Homeschool Article

I found THIS article last week and found it very insightful and encouraging. I highly recommend newer and more seasoned homeschoolers alike go and take the time to really read it. It is an interview with John Taylor Gatto who is a former New York state teacher of the year and now a well published author.

Every time I read anything by him I feel affirmed in what I am doing and encouraged to continue on!

I was happy to discover your My Balancing Act blog today. I was unable to find an email link in your profile. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

I would appreciate your reviewing SpellQuizzer in My Balancing Act. You can learn more about the program at There's a video demo you can watch at I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you very much!
