“Own Your Learning … Own Your Life”
Stephanie Sewell, B.Ed, B.Mus, is a former school teacher, veteran homeschool parent to a university-bound 18 year old and 15 year old highschool student, Independent Education Coach/Consultant, and Music Director for a community children’s choir. In all of these roles, she seeks to empower children, teens and their families to believe and act from the understanding that people of all ages have both the right and responsibility to “own their learning”. Normalizing and supporting homeschooling and self-directed learning is a huge part of her personal and professional life - she wants every child and teen - and their parents - to see this is a valid, do-able and exciting option!

PAST CONFERENCE SESSIONS
SESSION: HOMESCHOOLING TEENS - IT'S ALL ABOUT R.A.P. (RELATIONSHIP, APPROACH, & PROCESS)
Join Stephanie to explore the in's and out's of homeschooling during the teen years. What is at the root of positive parent - teen homeschooling experiences? How does this influence our approach to both parenting and education? How do we plan our days, weeks, months and years with all this in mind? Participants of all ages will have the chance to explore and challenge their assumptions around education, to consider how the teen-parent relationship can evolve, and to let go of "should's" in favour of a future that is determined by the teen's own educational and life path.
