Tonya Mankowski will be our guest speaker. Tonya is in her 8th year of homeschooling her two daughters, ages 15 and 12. She resides in Watertown with her husband, two daughters, and one dog.
She is the president of a nonprofit, volunteer, homeschool support group called Great Ways to Home Educate (GWHE). GWHE is an inclusive group, open to all who home educate their children regardless of faith, homeschool philosophy, or curriculum choice. GWHE has been supporting homeschoolers for over 11 years. GWHE organizes many events throughout the year, such as: co-ed soccer, Spelling Bee, Engineer Day, Teen Fair (Show What You Know), and Annual Picnic (with area museums, organizations, etc. attending).
Prior to becoming a mom, Tonya earned a B.S. in Civil Engineering at Drexel University. She worked in California, then in Connecticut on Environmental Assessment and Remediation Projects.
Tonya will be speaking about the flexibility and customizability of home education. She will share some of her favorite curricula and homeschool project ideas.
