Description

Want to be INSPIRED this September?

INSPIRED is not like any homeschooling conference that you have gone to before. We are about inclusivity and community first and foremost. Run by two homeschooling moms, we are looking to provide value to our own secular community. We have the most incredible Keynote speaker and 6 amazing workshops to chose from! This year will be about how to expand and inspire your children to follow their dreams and goals, and help to make your homeschool fun!

Don't forget about our vendor hall with many different curriculums, products, and services that we feel add value to your homeschool experience.

There will be presentations, demonstrations, hands-on exhibits and loads of time to network, and get to know other homeschoolers in the community.

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 14th - A Night to be INSPIRED

*Patrick Farenga has more than 36 years of fieldwork, advocacy, and personal experience helping parents and children learn in their own ways. Pat is a writer and education activist who addresses academic and general audiences about working with children, not on children, to help them learn.

Pat worked closely with one of the founders of the modern homeschooling movement, the late author and teacher John Holt, and published Growing Without Schooling magazine (GWS). GWS was the nation’s first periodical about learning without going to school, started by Holt in 1977 and published by Farenga until 2001.

Pat speaks as a homeschooling expert at education conferences around the world as well as on commercial radio and television talk shows in the United States (The Today Show, Good Morning America) and abroad.

Pat writes about homeschooling and self-directed learning for a number of publications and operates the John Holt/Growing Without Schooling website, www.johnholtgws.com. He is also a founding member of www.alternativestoschool.com and the www.self-directed.org.

Pat’s books include Teach Your Own: The John Holt Book of Homeschooling (Perseus, 2003), The Legacy of John Holt: A Man Who Genuinely Understood, Trusted, and Respected Children (HoltGWS, 2013), and How to Report Unschooling to School Officials (HoltGWS, 2015).

Farenga has also written chapters about homeschooling in Encyclopedia Britannica (2014, 2010), A Parent's Guide to Homeschooling (Mars Publishing, 2002), Creating Learning Communities (FER, 2000), The Handbook of Alternative Education (Macmillan, 1994), The Exhausted School (Oxford Village, 1992), Schooling At Home (John Muir, 1990), and The Encyclopedia of School Administration (Sage, 1988).
