…It really does!!! I felt most of the stress because as a former teacher my child should have been reading War and Peace by 1st grade (at least that was what other teachers around me made me feel). I should have known better after getting my training in Early Childhood Management and Education training. The Greats; such as Montisorri, Skinner, and Piaget to name a few; knew better than what the so-called professionals of today’s society are pushing us to believe. My daughter may not be at that level but there have been improvements and the desire to want to learn is getting greater. I also tapped into my early years for which I too had the same struggles. My reading really soared by 7th grade and my spelling improved 1000000% in college (weekly term papers). We all blossom in our God-given time. Enjoy your children and make learning fun for both.

Hello and welcome to Porta Academy Free Schooler (PAFS) website. This group was created to help parents find an alternative way to have their child(ren) educated. Many parents have different reasons why they have decided not to have their child(ren) in a traditional educational environment. What’s in a name? Porta in Latin means “gate” Academy (academia) in Latin means “a society of learned persons organized to advance art, science, or literature” or “a place of knowledge, explore theories, rhetoric, ask question and become enlightened” This is how our name and motto came to be, Porta Academy ~ The Gateway to Knowledge. What we have to offer. We not only have online resources, we also offer the opportunity for families to meet each other and interact with on another. We are here to plant the seeds of our future leaders as a group. We also believe in making enjoyable memories for the children and teaching to love each other as God wants us to. Our goal is to have families foster relationships with one another as we all learn and grow. We are happy to have you as part of the PAFS family. View all posts by portaacademy
