Let me encourage you by saying that if you are eager enough to try homeschooling than you have what it takes to be a good teacher.  Missouri state homeschool law does not put an educational restriction on the teacher.  Homeschool teachers don’t even have to have a high school diploma.  If you have a love of learning and the desire to pass it on then you have what it takes to be a great teacher. 

The best teachers are mothers and fathers.  If you have potty trained your child, if you have helped them sing the ABC’s, and counted with them 1, 2, 3… until they mimicked you, and you sang “twinkle, twinkle” until they could sing it by themselves than I congratulate you for being already a wonderful teacher!!

Be diligent, be purposeful, be convinced of your calling, be firm, be loving, be PATIENT! (That one is the hardest to learn but don’t give up! If I can get there so can you!)
