My name is Bailey Shuler and I live in Georgia. I’ve been homeschooled for 11 years. I played soccer for about ten years, and I am currently working towards opening a restaurant. I run my own food stand, called Square Peg Gastronomy.
Generally, when I wake up, I’ll go sit down and eat breakfast. I’ll talk with my brother, and maybe watch something short on TV while I wake up. Then I’ll go get started on school. It’s a pretty easy life. For senior year, I took English 4, geography, nature science class, art class, and I’m learning French.
I do. I’ve taken art classes, nature science classes, zookeeping classes, cooking classes, and many others.
I socialize in many ways. possibly more than an average non-homeschooler. I was in Boy scouts, and I do 4H. I’ve met possibly thousands of people through 4H. Working in a food stand has allowed me to make connections and meet many different people. I’ve also gone to homeschool groups and such, where I’ve made many good friends that I still talk to today.
Geometry was definitely the most difficult subject for me. Math has never been a favorite subject for me. I have troubles focusing, but with enough effort I can work my way through it. Geometry always bores me. So I had to figure out ways to work with it that made it more entertaining. Such as, playing a game in my head to figure out answers. It made things easier.
Usually, I’ll take a small break to eat something. But I prefer to plow through my school day, so I don‘t lose my focus.
I’ve only used Time4Learning. I have loved it since second grade. Its easy to use, and they always try to keep things entertaining.
Homeschooling has made it possible for me to start my own business, yet still have the time for opportunities to create memories, and meet wonderful friends.
I’ve thought about this a lot. And I’ve never wanted to go back to a traditional school. I love being homeschooled. I can do my school from the comfort of my own house, and I’m not under anyone else’s schedule but my own. It’s flexible, so I’m able to do things most non-homeschoolers don’t have the chance to do.
It sounds like you’ve done well, Bailey. We wish you loads of luck on starting your own restaurant! Thanks so much for taking the time to let us interview you!
