How Theodore Roosevelt Was Homeschooled

Theodore and Mittie Roosevelt homeschooled their children in New York City in the 1860s and 1870s. One of their sons, also named Theodore, grew up to become President of the United States.

The story of the Roosevelt family will inspire your homeschool journey with practical ideas for helping your children become all that God has created them to be. You'll learn how Theodore and Mittie:

  • Built a strong marriage to provide a firm foundation for homeschooling.
  • Had their children spend lots of time with each other and with extended family.
  • Made learning to serve others part of a complete education.
  • Gave their children opportunities to enjoy God's Creation, including trips to Oyster Bay on Long Island (pictured in the background).
  • Provided individual support and encouragement based on their children's special needs and interests.
