Our Family's 2020 School at Home Experience


We are some of the lucky ones, I guess. We chose to do school at home. I know there are many families who don't have a choice - they're forced into school at home or face-to-face, with few options in between.

But we feel very fortunate that our careers allow us some flexibility. My husband and I are both able to work from home - sort of. As a farmer, he makes his own schedule, and our kids can spend time with him during the day (but he puts in way more than 40 hours a week.)

The School at Home Podcast



Whether it’s virtual learning, distance learning, or traditional homeschool, many families are taking a different approach to school in 2020, either by choice or by default. The School at Home podcast is an up-close and personal look at how different families are managing their children's education during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you're a busy mom, juggling work, childcare and school at home, then this is the podcast for you! Join me, Katie Olthoff, a working mom-of-three, as I chat with women across the country who are trying to do it all in the midst of a global pandemic. Grab a cup of coffee and listen as these moms share their plans, tips and tricks to make the best of “School at Home."
