Come hear from experts in the homeschooling world as they share their wisdom on educating, parenting, and living out the homeschool life.

Keynote Speaker: Steve Demme

Steve has a passion for helping people understand difficult concepts and a desire to promote a lifelong love of learning. His innovative math curriculum Math-U-See has been reaching students for over 20 years with its unique integration of manipulatives and instruction that is focused on concept mastery.

Steve and his wife Sandi imparted their love of learning to their four sons, who are now grown and each involved in the operation of the business. In 2012, a family business transition from the first to the second generation was completed, with Ethan Demme being selected by the board as the new President and CEO of Demme Learning. Steve and Sandi continue to be involved as members of the board of directors.
