So You Plan to Home Educate?

Here's How to Start.  |  Friday 9:15-10:15AM

Ted & Shannon Tederoff

Overwhelmed by friendly advice and tons of information? Or perhaps you sense home education is right for you but you are lacking reasons for doing it or continuing with it. This informative workshop will help you weed through all the things you’ve heard and help you focus on what you really need to know for a successful and rewarding home education journey. Some questions we hope to answer include: Am I qualified? How do I prepare? Where can I go for help? What are some secrets of success? And more! Don’t miss this opportunity to get off to the right start.
