Welcome to the “Homeschool Professor” with special guest Dr. Joe Angley.

Show Host: “Welcome to the show Scott”
Scott Reece: “Great to be here”
Show Host: “Now I saw you online and was blown away by your presentation and ideas on project-based activities and how they had an affect on your children as well as your students in class.
