Answers To Reader Questions: Post No. 3

I was actually supposed to do this a week ago, but I forgot and only remembered after I'd posted last Saturday. Sorry, everyone!

Emily Rose asked:

Do you plan to home school until college? Are you taking college courses at the moment?

Yes, and no. I do plan on being homeschooled until college, unless we move to a district with really good schools or something like that, which is highly unlikely. And I'm not taking any college courses at the moment, though I have done (and am currently doing) some programs at Learner.org.

Got any other questions, bloggers?

(I really do like answering them. :) And it gives me material to post about on Saturdays for NaBloWriMo.)

Sorry if you've answered this before, but what do you think you might study in college?

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Too bad you live in a bad school district. I live and teach in a good one. My kids have received excellent educations.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You just want blog post fodder!
Any colleges catch your eye yet? You can't be that many years away from college!

The Golden Eagle said...

Sarah: Thanks for the question--I'll get to it next week. :)

Susan: Glad to hear you live in a good school district! It really makes a difference.

Alex: LOL. Well, it does give me something to post on. :P

Nope, college isn't terribly far away . . .

Misha said...

Interesting. Are you planning on studying further once you're done with school?

Connie Keller said...

Homeschooling can provide great opportunities for learning. I homeschooled my son and daughter through high school. They're both juniors at a good university. One is majoring in chemistry, the other in math. And they're both top students, and have lots of friends. I'm sure you'll do just as well, Golden Eagle!

Are you having a great weekend? I hope so! Yay! Take care

Susan Kane said...

You are an intelligent and gifted young woman, with maturity beyond your years!
I taught for many years, and appreciate the value of homeschooling. Wish you the best in college choices. Advice: go to a small quality college, where you have greater interaction with more people. You should never be 'anonymous'--you are too interesting.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

One of my friends home schools her kids. She say it's very rewarding. Your parents must enjoy it, too!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Homeschooling can be an amazing thing. Of course, those chemistry classes can get interesting ...

Josh Hoyt said...

I agree about the school districts it is important to get in a good one. I also think that it doesn't matter the school district as long as the child has good support and is motivated. Well sort of :)

Rusty Webb said...

Nice idea to take questions for future blog posts.

Trisha said...

I was homeschooled...in year 1! hehe

laughingwolf said...

no matter your major, you show already you'll succeed, by your mature attitude :)

BornStoryteller said...

Wait..you are not even in College yet? How old are you?

No matter what, as someone else stated in the notes, I am humbled at the intelligence and maturity you exhibit here. I was (and can still be) just an utter goocfball at my HS age years.

I think you know we all just hope you do whatever inspires and delivers your passions to you the most.

Shelly said...

So, do you believe homeschooling has made you tighter with your parents?

Stephen Tremp said...

Home schooling is great! Fortunately, we live an a great school district. But many of our friends homeschool, and if we ever choose to do so then we have a network already in place. best wishes to you and your education!

Charles Gramlich said...

I suspect, like many things, that home school can be wonderful, or not so much, depending on who is involved.

Jemi Fraser said...

I've taught a few kids who've wanted to experience 'regular' school in their last year or so of elementary school. They're always well schooled and well rounded people! :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Misha: I'll be sure to get to your question next week. :)

(And I will try not to forget to post again . . .)

Connie: Awesome! I love hearing about homeschoolers who succeed--it sounds like your son and daughter do. :)

Old Kitty: I am having a good weekend--thanks!

Susan: Thank you. :)

At the moment, it looks like I'll probably go to the local community college or something like that, once I graduate from high school.

L. Diane: Just my mom, actually; she's a former teacher, and I think she likes homeschooling me. :)

Donna: LOL. Most of the chemistry we've done has been from books--that's one of the drawbacks, since homeschoolers don't have access to labs like kids who go to public school.

Josh: As for that, my mom is great support. :)

Rusty: It's not really my idea--I saw a few other bloggers doing it and decided to try it myself. :P

Trisha: LOL. Well, did you have fun?

Laughingwolf: Thanks. :)

Stuart: Nope, not in college yet. As for the second question, I prefer not to mention my age, just for security reasons.

I can be a bit of a goofball myself sometimes. :P

Thank you!

Shelly: Another question for next week's post--awesome. :)

Stephen: Glad to hear you live in a good school district!

Thank you! :)

Charles: True. Homeschooling wouldn't (and doesn't) work for everyone.

Jemi: I've thought about going to "regular" school--when we first moved to the area, my mom asked if I wanted to go to public school. But I really like being homeschooled. :)
