Managing the Multi-Level Homeschool– With several children in different grades, it can be difficult to keep everyone on track and moving at the appropriate pace. This practical workshop will teach you the ideas and techniques we (and others) have employed to effectively manage many grades at once. While Homeschooling my four children (and at times babysitting others full-time), I spent a significant amount of time researching and learning from mothers of many more children than I had. Using their wisdom, I put these to work for me and am so glad I did! Change the mayhem to peace and order, and get the important things accomplished in your home school day.
The Symphony of Routines– Making Routines that will work for your family.
For Churches or Home School Groups I do not charge a speakers fee. I do ask permission to bring my books and CDs for sale for those interested. For travel outside of Louisville, related expenses will be requested.
