“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!

2022 CONFERENCE SESSION

SESSION: LIVE Q&A FOR PARENTS OF TEENS

Education Coach and Consultant Stephanie Sewell helps teens and their parents navigate the world without school.

This Live Q&A is a chance to ask your questions about anything from “Is it actually ok for my teen to just leave school?” to “How will they ever get motivated to do anything other than scroll through TikTok or play Minecraft?” to “What about University?”

Stephanie works with teens and their parents through all stages of these transitions, helping them to confidently and happily own and direct their education. What are your burning questions? Join us for this session to ask them, and to hear and learn from others’ questions too!

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.
