Karen Rodriguez is a mom of six with a great husband and like all moms, she wears a dozen hats: mother, wife, cook, house-keeper, nurse, mom's taxi, etc. But most importantly she also directs the education of her children. For thousands of others, she has leveraged her experiences in life and with the Robinson Curriculum to be the orientation guide to the Robinson Curriculum and homeschooling in general. In fact, we are privileged to have her act as the RC Ambassador to thousands of appreciative YouTube viewers. She has climbed some tough learning curves to order to help smooth the way for others.

"I have been homeschooling for 15 years. I am a pastor's wife, and we have 13 children. Our oldest is a freshman in college, and our youngest is 2. Never have I been so excited, so thankful, or so RELIEVED in our homeschooling -- as I am with RC under your guidance on youtube and on your Sustainable Homeschooling site.
We have tried so many different curricula. I actually lead a Charlotte Mason group here, where we are studying her books and discussing her methods. But CM curricula left me so overwhelmed, overtaxed, and irritated that I could not just be a MOTHER and enjoy my children -- I was constantly having to twirl different subjects in the air and keep them spinning while my children rushed to the next thing, waiting for me to find that "plate" and give it to them.
We started RC a few weeks ago, along with Dr. Lybrand's writing course. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. I had no clue my children were such fun writers to read! And I saw an email my 15-year old son sent to his brother in college -- where he wrote, "I am actually progressing in school now." (!!!!!!!) I didn't know how the children felt about it -- but that spoke volumes.
I am so much calmer, I have time to spend on my Littles, I can freely invite people over because I am confident in my children's learning and our house is staying cleaner (!) (I think because I have more time to devote to little things like that and because you inspired me to really get the children involved and DELEGATE), I am free to meet my 80-year old friend for coffee because my children know how to do their work when I am not here."
