HEAV SPEAKERS & WORKSHOPS
Homeschooling High School:
What’s Really Important?
Afraid to begin? Ready to give up? You are not alone. Taking responsibility for our child’s high school education can seem daunting, but take heart–it is do-able and can yield incredible benefits. Come and be encouraged as you gain insight into what’s truly important (it’s not what you think), learn some “secrets” of success, and discover some pitfalls to avoid–all from a mom who successfully homeschooled her own eight from preschool through high school.
Anne Miller and her husband, Jeff, decided to homeschool in 1980. Seven of their eight always-homeschooled children are now married and have become entrepreneurs, teachers, NASA rocket scientists, business owners, builders, and engineers. Anne, passionate about equipping and encouraging homeschool families, is president and executive director of the Home Educators Association of Virginia (HEAV) and has served for more than 30 years. Anne served on the advisory council for the National Alliance of Christian Home Education Leadership and has spoken at the national HSLDA and Alliance Leadership Conferences. At the 2019 HSLDA National Homeschool Leadership Conference, Anne received the Chris Klicka Award for her steadfast courage, dedication, and commitment to homeschooling. Anne and Jeff delight in their soon-to-be 16 grandchildren while living the HGTV dream remodeling homes in Williamsburg.
Getting Dads Involved:
Your Family Depends On It!
Join us in this workshop with a seasoned homeschool dad and discover practical ways to connect dads in their homeschool journey. Craig has helped many dads find the confidence they may lack and understand what role they play within their families. Craig will give practical tips, encourage dads, and offer wives specific takeaways to help encourage their husbands to come along on the journey of their lives. Homeschooling is a journey for the whole family…including dad!
