Public Speaking

(The video above is of the homeschool conference I was privileged to speak at in January of 2014. You can see a photo of me giving the keynote address at 13 seconds into the video.)

I like to talk. Way, way, WAY too much.

And I REALLY like speaking at homeschool conventions and have done it quite a number of times over my seventeen years of homeschooling.

In January of 2014, I was asked to be the Keynote Speaker for a homeschool convention in Utah. It was my first keynote, and probably my last, because I am not that amazing or great at being a KEYNOTE SPEAKER.

It was the first time in my life I was actually scared to get up in front of people. NO JOKE. 

But I eventually had an AWESOME time doing it, and I especially loved that I got to hang out with some great people!

I LOVE to encourage moms and homeschoolers, and speaking and teaching gives me a chance to do just that.

Here's what I like to speak about:
  • Encouragement in Homemaking 
  • Nobility in the Mission of Motherhood
  • Teaching Kids How to Work in the Home
  • Inspiring Greatness in students
  • Homeschooling children of various ages at the same time. (a.k.a "the One-Room Homeschool")
  • Homeschooling teens- especially keeping high school records.
  • Homeschooling children with a Charlotte Mason approach
  • SHAKESPEARE: How and WHY to teach it
  • How to lead class discussions
  • Establishing and nurturing a vibrant Family Culture

If you'd like me to speak at your homeschool or parenting event, please contact me at rachelkeppner at gmail dot com. I look forward to hearing from you!
