I’m Xuan Klevecka
I’m a Southern California-based homeschool mom, wife, and sometimes purveyor of vintage goods. I’m an Enneagram 5w7, a lover of good food, and a former middle school history teacher. You’ll either find me looking at road maps and daydreaming about our family’s next epic adventure or perusing recipes and cooking up a feast for the brood.
I didn’t always have a plan to blog about homeschooling. In fact, I actually went back and forth about becoming a homeschooler since I had such a great experience at public school and I didn’t want my kids to miss out. This meant my eldest son was my guinea pig and he went to preschool one year, homeschooled the next, Kindergarten the following year, and then back to homeschooling.
We’re now on year 5 and I think I’ve finally committed to being a homeschooler; however, to be quite frank, I find it challenging to be both the main caregiver AND teacher to my 3 kids. It’s hard to be engaged 24/7, to be cheerful and present, to be the superstar homeschooling parent I both idolize and loathe on Instagram. My tank often runs on empty, so this past year I’ve made a commitment to myself to carve out “me time” every single day.
I share about my self-care here at The Homeschool Front as well as my favorite homeschooling tips, resources, and my own personal journey in homeschooling my three kids. I’m also
nosy extremely curious and want to know what others in the community are doing and how they manage their children’s education while maintaining their own wellbeing, so every so often you’ll find interviews and guest posts here and there.
I hope you enjoy what I have to offer, and that when you leave this site you come to have a better understanding of homeschooling and how diverse the community has really become.
JUST SO YOU KNOW
I often use affiliate links in the blog. This means that I make a small commission if you purchase anything through those links. If I was gifted a product or sponsored by a company, it will be plainly noted at the top of the blog post, but that will rarely happen as I only share curriculum and resources that we actually own and regularly use at home.
Thanks so much for your support, I’m really glad you’re here!
