About the Episode
On the Strike a Balance Podcast for Working Homeschool Moms this week, I have the absolute pleasure of chatting to Kelsey Sorensen. Kelsey, is a former third grade teacher and substitute teacher. She is now a homeschool mom to 3 kids and owner of Wife Teacher Mommy, where she and her team serve Pre-K through 6th grade teachers and homeschool parents. She is also a certified life coach with the Life Coach School.
Wife Teacher Mommy has been featured on We are Teachers, Teachers Pay Teachers, Jane, Etsy, Food Network, CBC, Fox and NBC. Kelsey and her team have helped hundreds and thousands of educators and homeschoolers cut down planning time and balance the many roles in their lives with time-saving resources, blogs, life coaching, Wife Teacher Mommy: The Podcast and the Educate and Rejuvenate Events.
Kelsey is addicted to Coke Zero and listening to audiobooks.
It was such a pleasure to talk to Kelsey! She shared some fantastic strategies for balancing all the things and for feeling like you're doing enough. And as a licenced teacher and homeschooler, she answered the question: Am I actually qualified to homeschool if I don't have a teaching qualification? Spoiler alert…you are!
