Texas Ed: Comments on Education from Texas

July 20, 2007

San Antonio Homeschool Conference

Filed under: Homeschooling — texased @ 8:47 am

In case you’re wondering what I’ve been doing instead of blogging about education (I really want to get to Perry’s column on community colleges), take a look below. We’re getting ready for our 4th Annual Homeschool Roundup. If you’re in San Antonio on July 28th and have any interest in homeschooling, be sure to drop by. As soon as the conference is over, I’ll get back to all the wonderful opportunities Perry has provided for blogging.

SA-HERO Roundup Conference Workshops

Special Programs and Activities Mentoring: Sign up for one-on-one mentoring with an experienced homeschooler.

Used Book Sale: HERO will be selling avariety of books and other items to support its resource center. In the exhibit hall, table 13.

Teen Socialization Lab: Room 302 of Metz Hall will offer teens the opportunity to develop those “lacking social skills.” Drop by to test your skills at games, conversation, and munchies.
