You Want to What??!! Confessions of a Reluctant Homeschool Dad
When Joe Tyler's wife, Zan, recommended homeschooling in 1984, he thought she was crazy. In this session, Joe shares his experiences in his homeschool-dad journey from skeptic to raging fan. Moms will learn techniques for thriving in their homeschool classrooms with a reluctant principal, and dads will be encouraged to jump in with both feet and enjoy the experience. WARNING: In this session, dads may become so enthusiastic that they may even want to teach something!
