All Things Drive System

I plan to homeschool my daughter. Sometimes I wonder how I will be able to teach things that I know nothing about. Science and technology, for instance, is not my strongest suit. I understand that the subject is infinitely interesting, but since none of my former Science teachers were able to show where the fascination lies, all I am left with are memories of tests and grades and very minimal learning. I would like my daughter to be better than that, so this means that I have to be a better Science teacher than those that I had. I always said that anything that I didn’t know yet, I could learn along with my daughter anyway. This means that homeschooling necessitates a change in my attitude too. I tend to pass on the electric or techie matters to my husband, but it’s time I learned. For example, I lately had to write an article about drive systems and I did not know a single thing about it. In the course of my research, I came across a business (Drive Systems, Inc.) that offers high quality systems, parts and systems at very competitive prices. Now, my knowledge about this matter has improved. At the very least, I know where to go if ever I need new or used baldor parts. The site also offers all sorts of training so should we ever need to learn more about drive and control systems (for homeschooling or practical purposes), we know where to go.
