Understanding The Needs Of Homeschoolers in the Library

Thursday, March 24 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

Presented by :: Linda Hincks

Linda Hincks has taught groups of 2-250 in diverse subjects including raptor physiology, poetry, oceanography and homeschooling. Through the years, she has helped many families in their educational journey. In the last year, Linda has spoken at over 50 libraries. Linda was raised by artists and schooled to be a scientist, but that soon gave way to a love of public education in museums and classroom teaching. Then, not long after her first daughter was born, she heard an article on homeschooling. Her inner wheels began to turn; what could learning and life be like, if we did what was perfectly right for us? Through 20 years of homeschooling, Linda and her children have explored not just reading, writing and arithmetic, but also community building, service, and diversity. They have homeschooled at the top of a mountain, sang songs to non-releasable raptors and watched the moon blot out the sun. Linda’s favorite things include reading, collecting information, lindy hop, teaching and most things ending in -ology.
