Nervous and Excited: This Public School Teacher Knew She Didn’t Want Her Children Attending Her School

We recently received an amazing email from a mom after she watched Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution.

Sherrie and her husband are both public school teachers in New York City, but Sherrie heard about Schoolhouse Rocked on the Parenting with Ginger Hubbard podcast and her curiosity led her to watch the film.

Here’s what she had to say…

“I just wanted to say thank you for creating such a well done, modern and balanced representation of homeschooling in our country. It was not only inspirational and motivating for me who is still equally nervous as I am excited, but it also affirmed our decision to homeschool for the very first time.

It’s funny and truly sad how both my husband and I are NYC public school teachers, yet we were sure we didn’t want our children attending the public school system here.

Please keep us in your prayers for strength, perseverance, endurance and wisdom. I will be watching this documentary whenever I feel the doubts creeping in on the hard days. Thank you again.”


Over the years we have been blessed to receive countless messages like these from moms and dads, and it’s always a blessing to see how God is using the Schoolhouse Rocked Ministry to bless families. We recognize that it’s not because of anything special in us, but because of God’s great power. And, it’s all for His glory!

We also understand that we can’t and don’t do this work on our own. Without the support of the homeschool community we would never have been able to any of this. We are constantly humbled by the support that God provides through His people. Thank you for being a part of this critical ministry to homeschool families.

As we near the end of 2023, I want to ask for your continued help in this important ministry.

There is still much work to do and we have some large, immediate financial needs in order to continue this important work. To this end, we are seeking to raise $12,500 by the end of November and $25,000 by the end of the year, and we’re off to a great start! You responded generously to our first request, and because of your donations we were able to pay for all of our web hosting costs for the next year. Thank you!

Thank you for joining with us in this critical ministry to homeschool families!

The Story Behind the Story…

I know we normally share content and resources from our guests, but this week we had the opportunity to share the story of how God brought about the Schoolhouse Rocked ministry on the Culture Proof podcast with Wil and Meeke Addison. This was a great opportunity to share a testimony of how God has been working for more than seven years to build up homeschool families, including ours. During the interview we talked about family, faith, ministry, and culture, and I am sure this conversation will be a blessing to you.
