If you've ever wanted an alternative to life's prescribed choices, this episode is for you. Before she decided to be with her kids full time, Emily Wobker was a beloved high school teacher at a very demanding school, and she taught a class that a lot of schools don’t even offer—but they really should. She taught World War II and Holocaust, as well as many religion classes.
Starting in 2020, Emily and her family took a big leap--now they are homeschooling.

How did they do it? Find out!
