Creating a "Home" School Environment

Presented by: Bente Rodriguez

"Home is where the school is," but how do I get it all done AND set up an environment of learning? Discover tips for balancing the needs of your family with the needs of your house; how to foster the Spirit in your house of learning; stress-free ideas to incorporate "school" into your home environment; and how to prioritize (since we can't do it all, how to decide what is most important).


Bente Rodriguez is the mother of fifteen amazing children ages 24 to three. When she and her husband, Todd, first started their family, they never even thought about homeschooling; but as their oldest son was getting ready to enter kindergarten, they decided to give it a try (after all, how can you mess up a kindergartener?). A bit overwhelmed at first, they took it year by year, and before long, realized they were in for the long haul. After eighteen years of schooling her children (and at least fifteen more to go), she has three returned missionaries, one current missionary, four college kids (BYU-Provo & SVU) and ten still at home. She loves reading, working on home construction projects, being outside and most of all her family! She is also a lover of simplicity and learning!
