About the Abshire Family

The Abshire’s have a non-traditional work schedule. Both parents work in entrepreneurial roles where a typical workday is not 9 - 6pm. Travel and life experiences are important aspects of their life. One of their family goals is to show their children different cultures and gain life skills through experience.

The 4th grade student is a patient rule follower who likes to make her teacher happy. 

The 5th grader is more active and appreciates finishing his work for the day so that he can get outside to play.

Both students had success with e-learning in 2020. They will need an average amount of individual instruction. Both are great self-starters but will need accountability to finish their daily assignments. Both students are strong readers with average math skills. They are both coming from private school.
