Resources


There are different methods many homeschoolers use or refer to. These are not completely separate- one is actually called 'eclectic’! We can point you towards a variety of resources, and sometimes there are so many resources available, it is overwhelming and difficult to choose. We can help with that. Or, more seasoned families might have their minds made up- we will support your choices. We will never make you use a curriculum or resource that does not fit you, your family, or your students.

Totem is here to help you, your family, and your student, with your student’s education.

  • What the goal is for your student- is your choice
  • What methods you use to achieve it- is your choice
  • How you determine them achieving it- is your choice

If you don’t know what choices you have, or if you don’t know what to choose, we are here to help show you the choices, narrow them down, and try them out until you find one that fits you, your family, and your student.

Totem is here to help you navigate it all.
