We have been homeschooling for 9 years, and although I can do many subjects at home, writing was not something I learned well. I felt strongly that writing was a practical skill to have, but I was reluctant to believe all the great things I heard about IEW because it sounded to simple. I am so grateful we decided to enroll both my boys in Mrs. Odell’s class. Mrs. Odell loves this subject and she cares for her students. I believe that makes all the difference in her teaching style. She explains things well and also has fun with her students. I have seen both of my boys gain the skills and confidence to write! They have also been challenged to practice their thinking and organizational skills. She has been a blessing in our homeschool journey and I know she can be a blessing in yours. — Monica M.
