"That's so cool!"
I've heard it many times from people who have seen me sign.
But learning American Sign Language (ASL) isn't just about doing something "cool." Learning ASL can open the door to a whole new world of friends and interesting people!
My name is Michelle Mills. I learned to sign in high school when I made a deaf friend. She came to my house; as we would hang out, I learned ASL. It was an awesome experience!
Some books are full of delicate morsels of delightful words.
Some books are a little more “meaty” than others.
Some are a little dry, some a little funny, and others may even taste a little sad.
But no matter what your preferred taste, there will be a buffet of delicious books in Language Arts Fundamentals at the Monroe SA Prep campus!
High school math is hard.
And trying to teach your own child algebra when you barely remember 9th grade is even harder.
Let’s not discuss geometry or trigonometry.
What is calculus again?
But SA Prep in Monroe is equipped to handle this problem. We brought in a professional. Thank goodness!
We want our children to learn good manners. We'd like them to have poise and confidence.
We want to instill in them a love for people of all ages and an ease in social interactions.
Add to that, it'd be nice if they are physically fit and mentally alert.
Would you believe me if I told you that teaching them the art of country dance would aid in all those things?
Do you find yourself tired of driving from one activity to the next each day?
It certainly can be exhausting taking one kid here, another there, and then the thought pops up, “What are we going to have for dinner tonight with no time left after all this driving around?!”
You've been there, right?
Well, that is the beautiful thing about Summit Academy; your kids can do their extra-curriculars, like dance, after their science or history class, and you can keep your evenings open for family time.
This year, I am thrilled to be joining Summit as the ballet teacher.
Do your kids love reading, but you frown at the idea of coming up with comprehension questions and vocabulary words for all the stories and novels you read together?
Do you struggle picking out the figurative language and literary elements in literature?
Let me help you make literature your “friend” instead of your “foe” by teaching your child literature at Summit Academy!
Latin? I'm sure you're kidding.
My kids have enough trouble with the basics of English — certainly you’re not suggesting they learn Latin!
Let me explain why I believe Latin is an important part of a basic education, and why I started teaching it.
Both of my children are dyslexic, and along with that came a more-than-average struggle in learning the basics of English and language arts. I knew studying Latin would help build their vocabulary.
Do your kids love science, but you shudder at the idea of gathering supplies, turning your kitchen into a lab, and juggling toddlers while directing future “mad scientists”?
Does science get “rescheduled” for tomorrow — again and again and again?
I confess. Been there, done that, got the tee shirt. While I love science and the multitude of ways it can teach us about God and his miraculous creation, I dreaded teaching it in my own home.
I have a solution for us both. Let me teach your child science at Summit Academy!
It's more common than you think — in fact, 1 in 6 U.S. children receive a diagnosis that falls under the umbrella of Neuro-Developmental Delay (NDD).
This immaturity in the central nervous system is seen in such diagnoses as ADD/ADHD, Developmental Delay, Sensory Processing Disorder, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and many more.
Addressing the Need
A few years ago as a part-time pediatric occupational therapist at a local clinic, God showed Theresa Mitchell the incredible need for help existing in our homeschool community...
