Amanda and Stéphane Ostrander are two teachers who decided to homeschool their two daughters. They started their YouTube channel and blog, Raising A to Z, a little over a year ago, showing their journey in homeschooling while also offering tips, tricks, activities, ideas and parental support for other homeschooling parents. They recently wrote a book, How to Start Homeschooling: When You Have No Idea Where to Start. Together, they love to showcase the best of homeschooling life while also offering inspiration and support for other parents who are interested in homeschooling. When they aren’t filming, writing or creating cool content for other homeschoolers, Amanda and Stéphane love spending time with their daughters, Alexie and Zoé, reading, watching movies, exploring the outdoors and making music. They love to embrace the chaos that is educating and living life with two young girls in Northern Ontario Canada.

SESSION: TAKE IT FROM TWO TEACHERS : YOU CAN HOMESCHOOL
People are often surprised to hear that we are two teachers who decided to homeschool their kids. But, rarely do they question us, because they believe we are educated enough to effectively teach our kids. The truth is you can homeschool your children and you don’t need a teacher’s certificate to do it well. Take it from two teachers; Homeschooling is a valid choice and you are qualified to educate your children at home.
