Tune in this week while we introduce ourselves!

BTDT Homeschool Host Introduction

We are Nicole & Maria. We are thrilled to have you here!

We live in North Texas and have been great friends for over 10 years. We have 5 children between our two families and have both homeschooled from the very beginning. We collectively have over 30 years of secular homeschool experience and we have so much to share with you! There may be wine and we may go off topic from time to time so sit back and join us as we share honest tips and advice for what’s worked for us and what hasn’t to help you on your journey.

We couldn’t have done it without all our homeschool friends who guided us over the years on our journey. The Been There Done That Homeschool Podcast was created as a way for us to pay it forward and give back to the secular homeschool community. Enjoy!

So many parents have helped us along the way and now it’s our turn to give back to the homeschool community. In this episode, we will introduce ourselves and tell our stories of what led us to homeschooling our children.  

We have 30+ years of collective experience educating 5 children between our 2 families and are looking forward to sharing some of the things we have learned along the way!
