I’m Jacqueline Wilson, also known as The Homeschool Super Freak.
Sometime prior to 2011, I broke the news to my husband that I wanted to homeschool our daughter. It went something like this:
And so began my journey (which so far has involved laughing, crying, learning, gnashing of teeth, exhaustion, and elation … just to name a few).
I’ve been homeschooling for over five years now, but have been in the education field in some capacity for 16 years. I write and edit academically — books, study guides, and college courses — and have probably written and edited over 50 proprietary books or guides for colleges. (I’ve actually lost count at this point.)
I had been teaching, writing, speaking, and consulting in academic and business fields, so it was a natural inclination to carry that over into homeschooling. I created HomeschoolSuperFreak.com to connect with other homeschoolers and share an honest look at homeschooling (the good, the bad, the ugly, the fabulous) and to also provide different information that will support homeschoolers in their journey.
The site and page quickly grew into a popular homeschooling resource.
In 2017, I released the book It’s Homeschooling, Not Solitary Confinement: Busting the Myths, Misconceptions, and Misinformation About Homeschooling to rave reviews and quickly hit #1 bestseller in four bestselling Kindle categories: homeschooling, education theory, non-formal education, and schools & teaching!
