 Menu of Homeschool Workshops



Home education is a big job with lots of different hats to wear.  It can be time consuming and overwhelming to research all the avenues and put all the pieces together. 

I want you to have your questions answered, gain the confidence you need to do your job well as Educational Director, and obtain access to the best resources for your family. 


As a veteran homeschool mom and resource provider for over two decades, I have created workshops that address the most common concerns and provide skill development with hands-on application of key concepts.  My goal is to give you the tools to be successful in providing a quality education for your children, and to be your cheerleader and resource person along the way.  Contact me today to discuss ways we can fill the information gap!  


Workshops can be set up for homeschool groups in various parts of the Phoenix metro area, or individual sessions can be customized for your family’s needs.  Please let me know how we can partner together to encourage and strengthen you in the great job you are already doing by homeschooling your children .If you don’t see the topic that interests you, ask me about it. 


New addition! Workshops can also be set up for remote locations via online webinar or downloadable materials and audio files.
