Home Education Report for DEANNA


June 12, 2013

Deanna is finishing up her final year as a registered home school student. She has decided instead to pursue employment and a variety of learning experiences that may come her way in the future, but no longer wants to be a full time student.

Deanna is a very creative and passionate person which shines in her pursuit of art, poetry, animals, people and friendships.

This past year has included many life learning experiences that are in her areas of interest:

  • She attended a week long art course at the Red Deer College last August called Summerscapes.

  • She worked at our local vets office as a volunteer for February, March and April.

  • She volunteered with Liz T. at the Red Deer Dog Show.

  • She was a member of the Sundre Community Choir and performed at the Christmas concert here in Sundre as well as the Festival of Trees in Red Deer.

  • She performed with her dad recently at the Senior's Tea here in Sundre.

  • She has become a member of the medieval group Knighthaven in Red Deer.

  • She writes poetry all the time.

  • She has temporarily closed the door on her ownership of animals. She found homes for all her pets in the fall so she could pursue a job in town.

  • She passed the learners licence test. And hopes to get her drivers licence in September.

  • She put together a resume for herself. She completed three job interviews and successfully landed a job in the paint department at our local Home Hardware.

  • She is passionate about human rights.

  • She continues to work on the family ranch as well, helping out mostly with calving season which continues to be her favorite season of all.

  • She loves to write. She keeps a blog and journals on a regular basis.

  • She attended a Medieval Feast called Pillage the Village in Olds. A fundraiser for the Olds public library.

  • She has read a variety of books for school and for pleasure. She mostly uses the internet for pursuing the topics she is interested in.

NOTE: I plan to do an interview with her like I did with Jordan when he decided he was done with his formal education years. I will forward it to you when it has been completed.
