A TNVA family story
My daughter was in traditional schools for some of kindergarten. She had limited speech and didn’t know how to write or spell. Her school didn’t try to challenge her; the most she was learning was colors each week. She feared her school and we later found out that her teacher was physically abusing her. The board of education allowed me to take my daughter out and enroll her in TNVA.
We had never experienced homeschooling first hand, but I had heard a lot about TNVA. My daughter only got to start TNVA a couple months into kindergarten. By the end of the year she was starting to read small words, and we were able to understand her so much more. She began using complete sentences. She was thriving.
We continued to enroll in TNVA each year since, and the school staff always works with us as a family. I loved how well TNVA worked for my daughter so much that I enrolled my son. The teachers have always been there to support us and help us find solutions to any problems we have had. I have never felt so accepted in a school. My daughter loves coming to school now and always so happy to be in class. She has come so far with TNVA that she is now almost caught up with her peers. Her teachers all took extra time out to help her and now she can do anything. Her favorite thing to do now is read and I got to be a part of that. It makes a parent so happy to be able to spend all that one-on-one time with our children and be able to help them learn and grow into the great children they are.
