Home Educator Appreciation from GGM

Message from Miss Jocelyn

I have been blessed with a Mother who was willing to give up the "life" she could've had to stay at home and teach her children. I am continually grateful for the love and devotion she has put into my education as many home-educators have. During the month of December the GGM Team wants to honour home-educators by giving your students a chance to nominate you to win some great prizes! We know this is a small "reward" but it is our desire that home educators know how very important their decision to home educate their child is. We wish to show our appreciation of their love, time and sacrifice.


There will be three selected winners for this event, which will be chosen from the following categories:

Less than 2 years
Less than 10 years
10 years or more
How To Participate:
1. You must be a student to nominate
2. The teacher (or a member of the family) you're nominating must have a blog displaying that they're homeschooling.
3. Write a post about why this home-educator deserves to win, why you appreciate them. Please include exactly how long they've been homeschooling.
4. Link this post, encouraging others to nominate their home-educators.
5. Post the honourary HEA icon in your sidebar (below prizes)
