Alice Reinhardt is a veteran homeschooler of 35 years. Along the way she has lost her temper a few times, restructured the chore chart countlessly, and done a few things right as well. She is mother to seven children, all of whom are polar opposites, and has enjoyed the freedom homeschooling allows to tailor education to the individual learner. She continues to learn from her mistakes and hasn't met a challenge to back down from yet. She drinks more Pepsi than she cares to admit, eats chocolate in secret, and stands in solidarity with every other homeschooling mom who does the same.
