A Homeschooler is a Homeschooler, No Matter Where She Is

One of the things my daughter has discovered about public school is that nothing gets done when there is a substitute teacher. This came as no surprise to me, of course, remembering from my school days how I always enjoyed the break a substitute teacher would provide.

Last week the teacher gave the class advance notice that they would have a babysitter substitute the next day. The last time there was a substitute, the class literally just sat there. Doing nothing. Nada. My daughter ended up playing a game on her phone to kill time. So, this time my daughter came prepared and brought her Physiology and Anatomy homeschool work with her. Why just sit there when she could actually get something accomplished? She ended up getting quite a bit of work done while warming her public school seat.

I couldn't help but smirk at the irony of her doing her homeschool work while sitting in a public school classroom. You can put a homeschooler in a public school, but you can't take the homeschool out of them. And sometimes, they might just bring it along.
