Welcome to my little corner of the world.
I am mom to 5 children that I have homeschooled for over 16 years. My homeschooling journey started with my daughter, after we removed her from public school during 7th grade. She and two of my sons have since graduated and I currently have two boys at home, 7th and 5th grade.
Before my homeschooling journey began……..
For 20 years I worked in the corporate world while raising my first 3 children. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting, and after many years of hard work and dedication, I became the CFO of a large corporation. I accomplished exactly what my parents instilled in me; financial and career independence. That independence came with 80-hour work weeks, sleepless nights and a lot of stress. When my fourth child was born, I realized that I was burned out. I was constantly overwhelmed with guilt because I had absolutely no idea who my kids were. I started to feel God pulling at me, to be more present in their lives, So I quit my job, started homeschooling and never looked back.
Why did I start this website?
Peritia (pronounced ‘pear-ah-tea-ah’) is Latin for “knowledge, mastery, skill”
Because of my analytical nature (and accounting background), I can research things for days…..seriously. It can take me way too much time and effort to make a decision, especially when it concerns my kids. After so many years of homeschooling, I have an abundance of knowledge and information collected, stored, and saved. Now, I want to share it, in hopes of saving you from the sleepless nights that eluded me so…many…times. You can rest easy, sit back, relax, and revel in all the information here that doesn’t have to be researched and gathered. By you. Because I’ve already done it. Your welcome.
I do hope that you enjoy my website and all it offers. When I look back on those early days, I can see the many, many ways God worked in my life to bring me where I am today. The person I was, the person I am, and all the in-between, it was all in God’s plan.
