Director's Message

Dehesa Families,

We are honored that you have chosen Dehesa and the "Dehesa Difference" as your partner in the education of your child. In discussions with homeschooling parents, we often say that homeschooling is a family affair. Enjoying learning and exploring the world around us is contagious. When we are engrossed in learning, our children join us in discovery. The world is our classroom!

A key component of the "Dehesa Difference" is our Learning Styles model. We offer the "Self-Portrait Online Learning Styles Profile" to enrolled Dehesa students and their homeschooling parent. Scoring is automatic, you get immediate, printable results with correlated recommendations, plus a downloadable manual. Designed by Victoria Kindle Hodson, M.A. and Mariaemma Pelullo-Willis, M.S., authors of the book, "Discover Your Child's Learning Styles", we encourage you to take the profile along with your children. It's a great way to discover how your learning style and your child's learning style may complement each other and how to adjust when they don't. Ask your Educational Facilitator for a Learning Styles Profile account today! Then use the results to design lessons that draw on your child's strengths and talents. Research shows what homeschooling parents know intuitively, students are engaged when we draw on their talents. Thank you for sharing your journey with us!

"Promoting a system of education that recognizes and nurtures differences as talents and genius."
