Abstract: I was welcomed enthusiastically as I entered the home of Paul, Junior High student, and Helen, Paul's mother. As I took off my coat and shoes, Paul expressed excitement about the fact that I was interested in his homeschooling experience and, along with his mother Helen, we immediately ventured upstairs to his schoolwork area. Paul invited me to sit next to him at his desk, which comfortably fits a computer and allows enough space for Paul to read and write. Helen showed Paul's timetable and organized subject folders while he began to confidently navigate the school's website.
