Mi Families (“my families”) facilitates programs for families and those who work with families.  My families facilitates provider trainings, parent workshops, family events, youth classes, tutoring, & developmental services. All programs have been uniquely designed based on requests and observations.

While working in homes, schools, and centers – as a counselor, teacher, curriculum writer, ABA tech, coach, etc… I have been able to observe what programs are needed and listened to what programs were being requested. I listened to providers, parents, and tots thru teens.  If I couldn’t reach out with the requested resource, I formed partnerships with people who could.

My husband’s hat’s are many! He teaches around his film making career and helping me homeschool our 3 kiddos.  We never planned to homeschool, but here we are loving this lifestyle. We’re doing what works best for OUR family.  Each family, each child, is different – so different things work best for different families.

In decades of working with different children and their different families we have found no two families to be the same – and therefore don’t expect families to need the same resources to thrive.  Even in my classrooms no two students learn the same way – so each session there are multiple ways to learn objectives during our time together.

The past couple weeks I’ve been teaching different objectives to tots thru teens.  From all about me, to my family and friends, to our 5 senses and how we feel with our hands and our hearts … Little learners worked on reading “feeling faces,” the colors of emotion, their basic colors and shapes, counted up shape sides, and played number and letter games.

Older students played lots of learning games, participated in team work / communication games, and even survival training games that included shelter building, wilderness 1st aid lessons, and more.  These classes are a part of our homeschool co-op, as are many of my husbands courses. The pictures in this article showcase some of our co-op activities and some of “my life” activities.
