I consider myself most time to be a Home Educator I am less like a teacher and more like a Mom. So maybe I am neither. Maybe I am just a mom who continues to teach my children after age 5. lol! I don't know. I think all parents are homeschoolers to some extent we just dont always realize it. I think its cause most of us consider education to be textbooks and academics. Its hard for us to look at teaching life skills like shoe tying, potty training, manners and character as being education as well. Ok., I am rambling. I will stop now.

I really don't think it matters. We all use different ways styles to educate our children. As long as it get done in a healthy manner.
