A Word from GHF, the supporting-member newsletter of the Gifted Homeschoolers Forum, wants to hear the stories of successful gifted homeschoolers!
What makes a homeschooler "successful"?
One who, through homeschooling, is able to follow his or her passions. Those passions might be early college entrance, highly focused studies, community service, entrepreneurship, self-expression, etc.
What makes a homeschooler "gifted"?
While all people have gifts, it is a small segment of the population that qualifies as gifted. To learn more about giftedness, gifted and talented, or high potential, please go to http://giftedhomeschoolers.org/definitions.html.
What age range do we want?
Preferably mid-teens and above. Basically, the successful gifted homeschooler should be able to write his or her own article (more on that later) and have some insight as to how homeschooling allowed him/her to become the person he/she is.
What writing is required?
A brief article, no more than 500 words, about the benefits of homeschooling. The article doesn't need to be perfectly written, as that's my job as editor. It simply needs to be sincere and thoughtful.
What about photos and links?
All our contributors are encouraged to include a photo of themselves and any relevant links. Has the successful homeschooler started a business? Send us the link. Does the successful homeschooler work for a charity or non-profit? Send us the link.
Do they or their families have to be GHF supporting members?
No. Although, now that you mention it, why don't you check out how easy it is to become a GHF supporting member? http://giftedhomeschoolers.org/why.html
Who are you and what do you do?
In addition to writing this blog, I am the GHF Newsletter Editor. I work with writers to get their pieces submitted, then prepare those pieces for publishing. You can reach me at sarahw [at] giftedhomeschoolers [dot] org.
I look forward to hearing the many stories of successful gifted homeschoolers.
