While Parents attend Homeschooling for Excellence 101 and the Homeschool Expo, children ages 4-12 may attend a variety of workshops given by speakers who will challenge them to become active and excited learners. Our goal is to remind children that learning is rewarding and interesting and that learning can happen anywhere, at anytime.

Make sure to pack your child a lunch if you are attending the Dinah Zike 2 1/2 hour seminar on Thursday afternoon. There will be no breaks at that seminar!

Storytelling and performing children’s music are two of my passions and talents. I travel to elementary schools, preschools, and libraries to perform musical programs that are educational, entertaining, and motivating. While music is my passion, my love is teaching. For 11 years I taught first grade in Verona, Wisconsin. My programs are an extension of my favorite part of teaching, which is helping children understand themselves and the world around them.

 Animal Quest is dedicated to spreading the fascination and appreciation of the animal kingdom. The animal world is far more expansive than can be expressed in words… and even knowing as much as we do about them, there’s still more to know yet, with species undiscovered and mysteries unsolved. We seek to share the amazing nature of some of our planet’s creatures the best way we know how: through live animals, knowledge, enthusiasm, and laughter.
