So What Exactly Is She???

We have so many new members on "SHE"team and so many people asking about the team, that I thought I would take the time to introduce us. First of all, I would like to explain what "She" is not. We are not a particular religious group. Contrary to some popular beliefs, homeschooling is not always a religious choice. We are not anti-public school, in fact, several of our members have children in public school and children schooling at home. This is also not a negative group. One of the things I have come to love and appreciate about this team over the past couple of years is that the group as a whole is so supportive of each other and always has a word of encouragement to help the day along.

Now...on to what "She" is...Here is the team description as found on our team page.

We are a group of artisans united by the bond of home education. SHE is a family-oriented team.

Shops must meet team requirements in addition to Etsy rules, especially in regard to mature content and prohibited items.

Items in your shop (and linked from your shop) must be family friendly. We will not consider anything with adult content, profanity, the occult, mysticism, or nudity. They would not be considered family friendly. SHE is a "G"-rated team.

If you are schooling at home, have recently schooled at home, or working towards schooling at home( starting in 6 months or less) and your items fit with our target audience and community as a whole, you are welcome on our team.

We come from a variety of backgrounds, locations and faiths. The purpose of Sheteam is to provide support and promotion of our Etsy shops, not to promote a particular religion, political view or philosophy.

It's an honor to be part of such a creative group of women who homeschool their children! I'm always impressed with the items that members of the team create!
