2018 MÂCHÉ Preconference Tracks

Taking that first giant step into home education is quite unnerving! What if I can’t do it?

Teaching anything past the basic reading, 'riting, and 'rithmatic is rather intimidating, to say the least! So, how will I ever make it through calculus, chemistry, and college entrance exams?

Working with struggling learners is totally exhausting because of the enormous amount of energy that is constantly required! I love my child, but I’m burnt out and I don’t think I can do this much longer.

We believe that the Preconference Tracks will help to empower you with confidence, encourage you to take one step at a time, and give you the tools you need to be the most effective parent-teacher you can be. Home Education offers significant opportunities to shape the lives of your children and their world. All children are special and God has equipped parents to teach them best!

The Preconference Tracks consist of three different tracks, each with the purpose of giving you basic information, fresh ideas, and answers to your questions.  FirstClass Homeschooling is for parents just beginning to home educate, Homeschooling Through High School is for parents getting ready to teach their middle and high school children, and Homeschooling Struggling Learners is for parents of struggling and gifted children. We have chosen speakers who have “been there, done that” and interesting topics that will help you gain a confident vision for your children’s future.

Parents are free to mix and match any of the workshops that meet their specific needs. Family members may attend separate tracks, if desired. Middle and high school students are encouraged to attend the high school track with their parents.

The Preconference Tracks meet simultaneously on Thursday, April 12, 2018, from 9:30 AM until 4:15 PM.  Registration begins January 1, 2018.
