Have you ever been talked down to because you’re homeschooling without a teaching degree? This is a common misconception in our culture – that somehow a teaching degree qualifies you to homeschool. Actually, being a parent qualifies you to homeschool. Here’s some encouragement today from a professional educator (me!) who wants you to know that you don’t need a teaching degree to homeschool your kids.
Welcome to the show notes for Episode #109 of the Homeschool with Moxie podcast!
As a former classroom teacher, now homeschooling mom of five, I love to equip and encourage other homeschooling families.
Stick around to learn how to homeschool with moxie. It’s about embracing your journey and finding your groove.

Why You Don’t Need a Teaching Degree to Homeschool
Let’s change the narrative in our culture! Let’s show people why this argument (you need a teaching degree) is just not valid. In this episode, we discuss these points, and many more.
- You are qualified because you are the parent. Period.
- What do you learn in a 4-year education degree?
- What’s the history of education? What’s the history behind the modern factory model of education?
- What about classroom management? Don’t you need to know about teaching strategies? What about content area knowledge?
- The importance of professional development for the homeschool mom.
