Shannon Gribble

My name is Shannon Gribble. I have been married for 18 and a half years to Darrell. Darrell is a truck driver for Old Dominion Freightliners. We have 2 sons, Bradley (upcoming 12th grade) and Nicholas (upcoming 8th grade). We have been saved about 12 years and God wrecked us, in good ways, together at the very same time. We are coming to the end of our 9th year of homeschooling. It has been wild, crazy and sometimes insane, but we continue to press through. My hardest battles have been that both of our boys learn differently than the rest of the world. Hence, this is the key to why I homeschool. I have spent a lot of money on a bunch of different curriculum trying to find what works for my family. This past year has been my first time to teach a class at co-op. I have enjoyed it more than I had expected to. I like to help kids in finding what way works for them. I am willing to tweak what I am teaching, in order to help build their confidence. I like seeing the "light bulb" go off when they realize that they are more capable than they thought. It has been great and I am totally looking forward to next year.
