Why are Parents Choosing to Homeschool

Today’s show is another in a series of bonus episodes each featuring one of the incredible talks given by my participants in The Big Talk Academy as a part of our Virtual Showcase. This showcase is the culmination of their hard work as they cross the finish line to become certified speakers. 


These episodes give you a peek behind the scenes to witness the amazing Big Talks presented and also give you exclusive access to my live feedback and the direction I give to each speaker immediately following their performances.


This week’s episode features Rochelle Giordano and her talk, “Homeschooling Beyond the Pandemic.”


Rochelle has homeschooled her children from Kindergarten through High School graduation. She has spoken at Cal State Fullerton, women’s groups, CHEA's Keys to Homeschooling, and is a Master of Ceremonies. An entrepreneur at heart, Rochelle runs an online piano studio and teaches classes to homeschoolers.


In her talk, she explores:

  • Common associations and assumptions about homeschooling
  • What the pandemic brought to light about our education system 
  • The true meaning and history of homeschooling 
  • Why are parents choosing to homeschool 
  • Why homeschooling your child is here to stay AND why that’s a good thing
