Working and Homeschooling? Yes You Can

The following post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure statement.

Hey, homeschoolers! I was a stay-at-home mom when I started homeschooling. I did freelance writing and speaking and premarital counseling at my church. But I wasn't spending even twenty hours a week on work until my last two kids were teens. Because of that, I assumed that it simply wasn't possible to work and homeschool too.

My guest Dr. Celia Zamora changed my mind. Dr. Zamora has a Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics and was a teacher for 15 years before homeschooling her son. She is now a full-time director of a nonprofit who is also passionate about multilingual education and encouraging the Latino community to consider homeschooling. If you've wondered about working while homeschooling, prepare to be inspired by Celia.


In this conversation, Melanie Wilson interviews Celia Zamora about homeschooling and working at the same time. Celia shares her background as a director of a nonprofit organization and a homeschooling mom. She explains her decision to homeschool and the challenges she faces as a working mom. Celia emphasizes the benefits of homeschooling for working moms, such as developing important life skills and creating a personalized education. She provides tips for success, including outsourcing tasks and prioritizing self-care. Celia also addresses misconceptions and fears of Latino families regarding homeschooling and encourages them to consider the advantages of homeschooling for their children's language and cultural development.


Homeschooling can be a viable option for working moms, as they have the skills to balance multiple responsibilities and can prioritize what is important to them.
Outsourcing tasks and finding support from family and community can help working moms manage their time effectively.
Self-care is crucial for working homeschool moms to maintain their sanity and well-being.
Latino families may have misconceptions and fears about homeschooling, but it can provide opportunities for language and cultural development for their children.
