Cover for 2024-2025 Edition

From the Tennessee River to the Cumberland Plateau, this eBook has everything you need to make your homeschooling plans! My name is Myryea Ivey, and I have been homeschooling in Tennessee for seventeen years! With three graduates and four more in the homeschool pipeline, I’ve gathered a lot of experience that I hope will help you on your family’s journey. I’ve noticed that information is becoming hard to find, and I took the old-fashioned method of just writing it all down. I’ve scoured the internet for you!

From your first letter of intent to the high school diploma, I show you exactly how to access local resources to best match your child to opportunities. I include basic homeschooling tips like what you need to get started, where to find curriculum, local book, craft, and school supply stores, and much more! Read on to find out what else I have included!

Book length: 234 pages formatted on 8.5×11.
