Four keynote speakers who are well known in the local and international
homeschooling scene will inspire participants to provide their children with
“roots,” build their foundation, and give them “wings” so they can soar to greater
Deonna Tan-Chi and her daughter Joy Tan-Chi Mendoza will be speaking as a
tandem on “Building a Firm Foundation” – something that is crucial to every
homeschooling family. Deonna, along with her husband Peter Tanchi, is one of
the pioneers of the Philippine homeschooling movement. She homeschooled Joy
and her other children at a time when homeschooling had never been heard of
among Filipinos. Now, Joy and her husband Edric are also homeschooling their
five kids with Homeschool Global and are passionate homeschooling
advocates as well. Joy also inspires homeschooling and non-homeschooling
parents alike via her blog www.teachwithjoy.com.
U.S.-based speaker Andrew Pudewa’s topic on “Motivation: The Art and
Science of Helping Children Learn Well,” will surely be beneficial to
homeschoolers in all stages. Andrew is the director of the Institute for Excellence
in Writing (www.iew.com), and is a highly sought-after international speaker who
specializes in issues related to teaching, writing, thinking, spelling, and music.
“Wings to Soar: Leaving a Legacy for Our Children” to be given by Bo
Sanchez (www.bosanchez.ph) is set to encourage all homeschoolers to
remember the “whys” behind homeschooling – and help children soar to greater
heights. Bo is a bestselling author, international speaker, and entrepreneur. He
also founded the Light of Jesus Family and Catholic Filipino Academy, a
