One of our most popular guests in 2022 was Dr. Vermelle Greene, speaking about how boys view the world differently, and how our approaches need to be creative to parent them successfully. Dr. Greene has been an educator for more than 48 years (as a teacher and administrator from elementary through college levels). Founder of S.A.C.R.E.D. Life Academy for Boys, a Christian school in Capitol Heights, Maryland, embraces the idea that boys learn differently than girls. Author of Please Teach Me Like I’m a Boy!, Dr. Greene will join Gretchen for a continuation of our spring discussion of how homeschool parents can reach and teach their boys for the best possible outcomes.

Creating a Micro-Business in Your Home, with Katie Dugdale

Free Virtual Event

We are called to be creators, not just consumers. When we start a micro-business, we are innovating and creating opportunities for ourselves and others—creating more space to grow and give. Micro-businesses—companies with annual sales and assets valued at less than $250,000 and fewer than five employees, including the owner—thrive in a home-based environment. What are you already doing for free that could be channeled into a micro-business? Graphic design? Dog walking? Babysitting? Writing? Yard work? Sewing? Teaching? If creating a business like this sounds exciting, join us to learn some basic building blocks of starting a micro-business.

There is often a misconception that artistic and mathematical thinking are opposites. Math and art are more like fraternal twins—they might not look alike, but there is a definite connection between them. Join us as we talk about some ways to demonstrate the connection between math and art, for either your “artsy” student or your more “math-y” student who might need some creative thinking encouragement.
