About Tina's Learning Adventures
Tina's Learning Adventures started under a different name, "Homeschooling with the Amazing Race", (which is still an active Facebook group!) in 2012 with my desire to make a family pastime of watching the CBS reality tv show The Amazing Race a little more educational.
I started looking for supplemental learning resources around each country the racers were racing through, and it just grew from there. Eventually I realized this was something I could share with others to enjoy with their own children.
As time went on, I also began exploring ideas to create other types of courses, beyond the world cultures/geography courses. And things have just continued to grow from there as new ideas come to me!I have many new classes in the works, in a variety of topics, so stay tuned for exciting NEW LEARNING ADVENTURES TO COME!
I have been homeschooling since 2005. Neither of my children has ever been anything but homeschooled.
I have my bachelor's degree in child development and many years of experience working with children in a variety of educational programs, both traditional and alternative, prior to becoming a mom. A few examples: summer camps, daycare & preschool programs, a science and conservation "outdoor ed" program for 6th graders, a local children's science center, and even (briefly) in the local public schools as a substitute teacher.
After becoming a mother, I continued to work with groups of children with a "mommy and me" program I ran out of my home for nearly 3 years. In addition, I have led many organized activities and events for homeschoolers in my community for years.
I also do a homeschool podcast with a friend called the Savvy Homeschool Moms.
