The Schoolhouse Expo AND a Giveaway!!

I absolutely love to go to teacher conventions. It is so fun to learn something new and meet-up with other educators. Now that I am teaching my own little ones at home, I feel much the same way about homeschool conventions.  I find them truly inspiring and filled with so much helpful and practical information.
Coming up May 16-20, a very special online convention is taking place! If you aren’t able to attend a conference in person or you just have an insatiable appetite to learn all you can, The Old Schoolhouse Expo is for you!  Not only is the speaker line-up excellent (including Susan Wise Bauer, Jim Weiss, and many more), but when you buy a ticket, you’ll get access to a downloadable MP3 for every workshop (available mid-June).  I love this because you can listen to your favorite workshop again — or any workshop you’ve missed when it’s convenient for you.
Plus, you will also have access to a virtual goodie bag valued at over $200 (there are so many great items available!), door prizes, and a virtual vendor hall offering freebies and specials!
Here is the great news — tickets are just $19.50. BUT, this is a special “Early Bird” price set to expire tomorrow (January 9th) at 11:59 PM.  This is a great deal, because on February 10, the price goes up to $29.00 and the bonus freebies will no longer be available.  The regular price of $39.99 will be in effect on February 27th.
Go visit the The Old Schoolhouse Expo to find out more!  (I’m heading over too, so I can find out more about their Entrepreneur/Work-at-Home Track and the special track for High School students!)


This is really fun!  The Old Schoolhouse Expo is giving me an Expo-to-Go to give away to one reader!!  You’ll receive access to MP3s from last October’s Expo featuring Diane Craft, John Taylor Gatto, and many more!

Disclaimer:  I am receiving an Expo-to-Go from the sponsors of the The Schoolhouse Expo, but rest assured — all thoughts and opinions are my own!   I think very highly of The Old Schoolhouse Expo and The Old Schoolhouse magazine!  I was delighted to be contacted by them and able to share this opportunity with you!!

  7. The speaker line up looks fantastic. If I had to choose only one that I'd really want to hear I think it might have to be Jim Weiss. We have some of his CDs and my kids love, love, love to listen to the stories over and over.
