Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Letting Go of the “Shoulds”
The first few years of homeschooling out ‘tweens was hard and sometimes it wasn’t fun.  That’s because there was a tape running in my brain with all the “Shoulds”.
We should start class by 9:00am.  He should be learning grammar.  She should be doing this level of math.  I should be accumulating an educational portfolio for college entrance.  The “Shoulds” wore me out.  Let go of your natural inclination to mirror traditional  education at home.  Enjoy homeschooling by creating your own :Bucket List” of educational priorities and use practical tips to build on your family’s unique rhythms, interests and passions.  (Ideal for families of gifted or challenged students.

Creating Room for Joy by Reducing Clutter
One of the biggest anchors in people’s lives are their accumulated ‘things.’ Living as a family of four in an RV touring America very quickly shows you how little you really “need.” Learn the strategies of downsizing your possessions and creating room for a lifestyle unburdened by disorganization and clutter. Includes practical tips regarding children’s artwork, photographs, closets, toys, clothing and garage areas. Experience the peacefulness of letting go of possessions that stop you from the projects you’d like to be doing and streamline your life to allow you more time to experience outings and adventures while homeschooling your family.

Families-on-the-Road: Lifestyles, Philosophies and Budgets
Not all who wander are lost” is a favorite saying for full-time RV families who “road school” their children. Families come in all shapes and sizes and the ranges of income, employment, educational philosophies and lifestyles are extensive, but the unifying element is a home with wheels. Explore how five families approach the costs of life on the road and take advantage of the educational opportunities with Mary Ann Malkoff, mom of two teenagers learning history, science, fine arts, math and geography, living full-time for three years in an RV touring the US and Canada spending less than living in a traditional stick house.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Mary Ann Malkoff and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
