    gatewayhomeschoolers (Gateway Homeschoolers) - Gateway Homeschoolers came about when two homeschooling moms (Roberta Maxim & Julee Taylor) with many ideas formed a friendship, had fun learning along with their kids, and decided that it would be a great idea to spread out and share the fun with other families. We are a growing support group for homeschooling families in the area who are looking to connect and have some fun while providing their children with opportunities to learn. We are open to all ages, tots to teens. We do not discriminate in any way. We also extend our welcome to those who may not homeschool but are curious.
