9:30 am Panel Talk and Q& A: How Do You Homeschool? |  Becky Coltrain, Traci Bazzelle, Angelina Gearke  |  There are so many ways to homeschool! How do you choose? What is best for you and for your family? Come and learn about three methods to see if they would be a good fit for your family, or just to learn more about them. Home educators Becky Coltrain, Traci Bazzelle, and Angelina Gearke will introduce the way they homeschool, and why they use it, and answer any questions you might have about their educational methods. Becky will discuss using the Montessori method, Traci will discuss using the Catholic Schoolhouse method, and Angelina will discuss using the Charlotte Mason method. After the ladies give general overviews, the floor will open up to questions.

10:45 am Returning the Gentle Rhythm of Peace to Our Homes: A Daily Filing System    |   Megan Fassero and Angie Stoner | Our homes are our offices, schools, dwelling places, and domestic churches. How to keep everything in its place and not miss what each day, month, and season offers? We love to share what has worked for us for over twenty years to keep our paper treasures returning each year to mark milestones, remember occasions, and pray for others. One touch a day helps us maintain a gentle rhythm of peace in our homes.

12:45 pm The Temperaments | Elizabeth Slobodnik | Philosophers and psychologists have been studying the four temperaments (choleric, melancholic, sanguine, and phlegmatic) for thousands of years. Temperaments—yours, your spouse’s, and your kids’—affect your prayer life, homeschooling, and relationships with family and friends. A better understanding of ourselves and our children can produce immediate improvements in our homeschooling situation. Learn how our temperaments can be harnessed to propel our families to greater sanctity and success.

*If you’ve never done so, it would be helpful if you took a free, online temperament test before attending the talk, such as the one found at temperamentquiz.com.

2:00 pm Homeschooling for Life! Preparing Your Homeschooled Student for Life After High School  |  Megan Fassero | As the Homeschool Outreach Coordinator with the Benedictine College’s Office of Admission, Megan Fassero has the blessing of interacting with homeschool students and families across the country. Based on that experience, and drawing from conversations with admission office professionals and college professors who teach our homeschooled students at a university level, Megan has pulled together some practical tips for preparing your homeschooled student for life after high school.
