Two Stephens (Shew and Priddle) will share about their homeschooling journey and philosophy. This will include what convinced them to home educate, the family and marriage dynamics, and things they learned through the experience that they would like to share with others.
Shew has three girls who started in the public system and has one finishing home education, with the children’s post-secondary focus being fine and vocal arts. On the other hand, Priddle has three boys and a girl and has completed their home education, and the children’s post-secondary studies have been applied (accounting, engineering, electrician trade).
