Three classes are offered for your child to participate in. Moms are required to participate. Each mom will lead teach a class, assist in a class and have one period off. If the thought of lead teaching is intimidating to you, we offer mentoring and training for planning a syllabus, classroom management, accommodating learning styles and general expectations. During your free hour, you can visit the moms room where you can share life with other homeschooling moms and enjoy tasty snacks!

IEW has a mission to “equip teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials which will aid them in training student to become confident and competent communicators and thinkers.”
