the NewSchool System works!

“When I started my homeschool journey I was very insecure, with no confidence in my own capability.  Avaline spoke into my life, as a mother and as a teacher and had an absolutely massive impact. 


Her brilliant insights and manner inspired me to love the process of learning “how to teach” and even how to relearn things myself that I had struggled with as a child.


She was my biggest cheerleader and an inspiration for my children as she explained even difficult processes in a simple and understandable way.” 

Debbie - Mother of 5
