Twelve Easy Ways to Prepare Your Student Now for the College Board Exams by Joanne Calderwood
Education should never be all about preparing for the SAT, the ACT, the PSAT, or any other tests. However, Joanne Calderwood has found that high College Board test scores in the high school years most definitely are a result of certain things that you probably already do with your young children/teens now. In this workshop, Joanne will discuss twelve concrete things you and your students can do beginning in kindergarten and elementary school, up through the middle school years, and concluding with the all-important high school years, that will naturally prepare them for these exams. Come find out how Joanne has raised high achievers who test well (including a perfect SAT scorer) as a direct result of their self-teaching upbringing and see how you can plug into this power source too. You’ll be surprised and encouraged! A must-hear if you are raising college-bound students.

As Dr. Seuss says, “Un-slumping yourself isn’t easily done.” As a former Slumpsville resident, Joanne has learned how to move out of the combat zone and back into the comfort zone where life is full and fun again. Learn some surprising secrets this non-athletic, forty-nine-year-old mom of eight kids (and an exercise hater) has to share that can help you get back into the zone—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—and get back in sync with your busy self. Note: There shall be no utterance of the word “diet.”
