I've got a little something exciting to tell you about the Teach Them Diligently conferences. Want to hear it?
They've just opened up registration for NINE locations for their Marketplace conventions, and 3 of them are on my side of the country! Woohooo!
I've been singing a little song lately about all of the great conferences out there for theologians, bloggers, parents, and homeschoolers. It goes like this: "Please, oh please, oh please come to the West Coast!" Teach Them Diligently is getting closer and closer to my neck of the woods with Marketplace locations in Colorado Springs, Tacoma, and Tucson.
The other six locations might be near you! They are:
- Fort Myers, FL
- Pittsburgh, PA
- Philadelphia, PA
- Houston, TX
- Little Rock, AK
- Dallas, TX
What are the Teach Them Diligently Marketplaces? They are simply shorter, more concentrated versions of the larger 3-day conventions that Teach Them Diligently does each year. Marketplace is a day-and-a-half, features a smaller, more focused group of speakers, and costs a fraction of the regular convention price.
The "marketplace" aspect of Marketplace is killer-great. Curriculum centers that are packed with the best of the best, there to let you browse, ask questions, and purchase. In fact, with your $15 registration fee, you'll receive a $10 off coupon on a purchase of $100 from any vendor there!
I'm a big believer in homeschool conventions. But I also know that some of you feel overwhelmed by the vendor halls, frustrated by the lack of practical academic training at some conventions, and weary with the thought of spending all that time and money on a conference that may or may not leave you feeling more inadequate than equipped.
That's exactly why I love speaking at homeschool conventions all over the state! It's also the heart of the speakers and coordinators of Teach Them Diligently - equipping and encouraging you to not just make it through another year but to thrive.
Am I going? Yes. My daughter-in-law-to-be's mom and I are planning to go together and get a good shot in the arm of encouragement. As soon as I know which one I'll be attending, I'll let you know and I will sit myself down somewhere while there to lend you a hand, too. Encouraging you is one of my favorite things to do!
