I would love to speak at your local homeschool convention! I try to provide helpful, concrete information in an upbeat way. My job is to remove the fear of homeschooling middle school and high school, and I love encouraging parents at conventions!
Last year I spoke at the OCEAN conference in Oregon and received such sweet feedback from attendees! This is what they said about my presentation Homeschooling Middle School with Powerful Purpose: "Love her! Please bring her back! Last year I didn't think I could homeschool High School but I hear Lee and found the courage to go for it!"
When I taught the class High School Record Keeping I gave out chocolate to soothe nerves and I think it worked! I got a LOT of comments on the reviews about the chocolates! One mom said, "So practical! Thanks for sharing the stories to drive home the importance, and for the tips on how we evaluate our children!"
And I was relieved when I saw the comments on Creating Transcripts for Your Unique Child mentioning how funny it was! As a speaker, it's hard to know if your jokes come across well. One mom said "Totally feeling like this is doable! Your notes are great."
Tracy heard me speak at a convention and was so energized and encouraged! She wrote recently sharing about her college scholarship offers. So nice to see the end result, when parents write back after graduation. Listen....
"I attended the Homeschool Conference several years ago when you were speaking. My daughter was just beginning High School and I felt lost. You were wonderful! I left the conference feeling energized and encouraged. I read your books, and watched your videos. I can't tell you how often we used your advise in dual enrollment, college visits, transcripts, applying for scholarships, etc. I felt like you were walking beside us through it all.
My daughter applied early her Junior summer (last year) to her #1 college choice (Liberty University) and was accepted right away. Then she applied to the Honor's Program early and was accepted right away. She received multiple academic scholarships and then received the Valedictorian Scholarship this summer which is a four year, full tuition scholarship. We are elated and thanking God for your wisdom and encouragement to homeschoolers. Without your guidance I'm not sure the results would have been as amazing. I pass along your website and information to as many homeschoolers as I can. God Bless you Lee! And thank you so much for ministering to our family!"

This year, I also spoke at the Washington Homeschool Organization convention, and they provided feedback as well, saying, "Knowing we can never meet everyone's expectations, it is still obvious that your presentations were well received and beneficial, based on the great evaluation responses below."

Parents need to keep the academic records for their teens after graduation . They may be needed for further education in 5 years.... or 10 years... or 30 years after the children
Electives are subjects your children do on their own and they aren't always something you assign. You'll learn how to put high school electives on your transcript. And, we'll go in depth on some
