Reasons To Attend A Homeschool Conference
I am honored again this year to be on the NCHE Blogger Team, once again in the following months I will be giving away a family registration so be sure and check back often!
I love going to our state homeschool conference every year and here are some of my favorite reasons why you should go too!
This is my top reason for going every year. Lets face it this homeschooling stuff is hard. As a mother I need some encouragement and as a homeschooling teacher I need it worse. Ya know your messing up right, oh why are you not using this book instead of this one... You know each and every one of you have had that thought run through your mind. I need the uplifting for my spirit and soul as much as possible and normally at these conferences you will hear so many real life statements and stories you can't help but to remember - Its going to be alright.
I love to see curriculum before I buy it. I like to look at the pages etc. You can do that here during vender hall. You can find new curriculum as well if your in the looking business. You may also feel overwhelmed so please make a list of what you want to seek out that will help you during this time. I love finding supplements while looking. You can find a lot of hands on items for your studies!
Great for Dads
Yeah really! There is always a great need for the men of the homes to be involved right? Well the conferences help the dads too! The men can come to help look at curriculum, or listen to a wonderful speaker and its wonderful for the dad to be involved - right? I love that my husband is so on board with homeschooling. He has went with me to our conference every year and listened to speakers himself. Include your whole family during this time!
Every job is constantly changing - homeschool parents/teachers are not to be excluded. We have different seasons that come with our role and we can learn some valuable techniques while at the conference to juggle it all. There is always such a wide area of speakers that you can choose to listen too.
Homeschool conferences are great for first timers or veterans! I have homeschooled for 11 years and I still love going to our state conference. Join me this year!!
