Hi, I’m Pam Barnhill, and like you I dreamed that my days were going to be cuddles on the couch, drinking hot cocoa, while my children gathered around with rapt attention to the classic book I was reading for the second hour in a row.
Every single child would be a self-motivated lover of learning because I was going to do things exactly right.
And then I actually got started.
It’s not what I imagined at all.
If you’ve ever found yourself thinking:
“I know there has to be a way to homeschool that combines loving relationships with high expectations.”
“Every other homeschool mom seems to have it together better than I do.”
“I’ve never been a teacher — how can I know how to educate my kids effectively.”
Then you are in the right place.
I’m a homeschool mom of three (mostly) awesome kids. I have a knack for breaking down big tasks into small, manageable steps.
I believe that preserving relationships doesn’t have to mean sacrificing a quality education.
I believe that all homeschool moms can be their child’s best teacher.
I believe that homeschool moms need mentors and community to thrive.
And if you allow me to, here’s how I’d like to help you and your homeschool:

PRAISE FOR AUTOPILOT
Before Autopilot, I struggled to see the big picture and to have a consistent record of goals and progress from year to year.
As I went through the steps, I was both refreshed and excited to learn Pam’s perspective on planning and implement a simple, but thorough planning process. I love the consistency of planning in the same way from year to year.
In this module, you will create a statement of intent for your homeschool. Here we aren’t looking at what we want our kids to be in 20 years (as if we had control over that) but instead what we want our homeschools to feel like in the day-to-day. By creating a vision of our days, we can direct our choices and actions in this course and in our homeschools.
While our vision is the 10,000 ft view of our homeschool, module 2 gets specific about meeting the needs of each child by crafting goals for their school year. You will learn how to use these goals to easily tailor a plan to meet their educational and developmental needs.
After our vision and goals are in place, it’s time for the sometimes daunting, sometimes fun process of choosing curriculum and resources for our school year. This module breaks down the how to do that with confidence.
Now that our curriculum is on the way, we get to dive into how we are going to use it. The first stop is to plan out which days of the year we are going to do school. This module is all about embracing our options as homeschoolers.
Flexibility is the keyword as we set up systems that will allow us to thrive within structure. In module five we will set aside time that honors our school day and create a daily rhythm that fosters peace in our homes.
Next, Module 6 introduces the first of two different kinds of lists that we will use to create the ultimate in auto-pilot for our school days. The procedure list is the key to creating a plan that eliminates decision fatigue and gets done – even if the toddler is designing the walls with sharpie or stuffing the drains with legos – again.
This module is the second of our two kinds of lists vital to auto-pilot success for our homeschools. The lesson plan list is your non-threatening friend who waits patiently when your regularly scheduled school day goes awry.
Now that our plan is complete it is time to figure out exactly how we are going to put this plan into action. The first step of the process is to organize our materials.
Beta testers called this module “worthwhile” and “helpful.” Now that we have our plan written and our space organized we are ready to put it to the test and see how it might run. And to do that we are going to try something a little bit different…
Auto-pilot must have regular maintenance in order to continue to function. That is where this final module comes in. Here we will discuss when and how to make sure our plan continues to work.
PRAISE FOR AUTOPILOT
I previously used a “school in a box” program and wasn’t sure how to plan when I decided to design my own curriculum. Autopilot gave me a starting point and provided me with direction!
PRAISE FOR AUTOPILOT
I’m not great at follow-through. The way Autopilot is constructed each step truly does pull you through to the next one. It’s not just an endless list of to-dos to trudge through!
I have MUCH more confidence going into next year! I’m a second-generation homeschooler, this was year 6 for us, but I’ve never thought I had a great handle on the ins and outs of schooling my kids, it was always a lot of flying by the seat of my pants! I literally can’t wait to get my plans in place and see what next year throws at us!
