About this session

Society is rapidly changing and that means that many of our organizations are also rapidly changing. The new families who began homeschooling due to the pandemic have added more than just numbers, they have come with different expectations and needs. How are these newbies different? How are they similar? What impact is this new wave of homeschooling having on organizations? This workshop and roundtable will explore how homeschooling is changing due to societal changes.

Academy (a homeschool co-op serving 300 children from 1st through 12th grades). Zan has written and published three books: 7 Tools for Cultivating Your Child's Potential, Refined: A Homeschool Mom's Call to Trust, and Anyone Can Homeschool (co-authored with Dr. Terry Dorian).

In 2015 Zan was presented with the Chris Klicka Award for her dedication and commitment to home education worldwide. And the governor of South Carolina presented Zan with the Order of the Palmetto, the highest honor a civilian in her state can receive.
