About

With a degree in secondary English education, Sonlight was an obvious choice when Sheila DelCharco decided to homeschool her three children. When her oldest asked to go to a small Christian high school, Sheila was concerned about he would transition to the classroom environment. Her fears were laid to rest when she saw his first report card, and even more so when she sat in on a class. He graduated high school with honors and has graduated from the University of Florida in Finance. Her other two children homeschooled through high school and were accepted to the honor's program at the University of North Florida. Sheila is convinced that exposing them to all those books over the years is what led them to this point. Because of her passion for literature-based learning, she is a veteran Sonlight consultant, drawing on her own experience when speaking with families at homeschool conventions for the past 18 years.

Online Convention Workshops

  • Homeschooling is not the only “job” you have as a mom. Whether you have a full-time job, volunteer for an organization, or have a sideline that takes your time on a regular basis, the stress can add up in a hurry. Balance is the key to successfully pull off the juggling act between work and homeschool. Join Sandy, Rhonda, and Sheila as they help you set goals and establish boundaries that make it possible to do both well.
  • High schoolers are busy people. Education is just one of the many responsibilities on their plate and may not be a priority (in their minds). If your high schooler is already a book lover, then using a literature-based approach to learning will likely resonate with your student. If, however, your high schooler would prefer a root canal over reading a good book, you will have a greater challenge in making the study of literature appealing. Join Sandy, Rhonda, and Sheila as they share the value of literature-based studies for high school and offers some practical tips for engaging a literature-reluctant student.
  • Literature-based learning is a great choice for teaching children across multiple ages. There is no better way to create relationships and develop strong bonds between your children that will last a lifetime. Learn how to establish an environment that encourages learning together. Veteran homeschool moms Sandy, Rhonda, and Sheila will share practical ideas for planning and organizing your time to incorporate shared learning through the use of good literature.

A place for everything, and everything in its place. Yes, an orderly homeschool environment does matter. But how do you create such an atmosphere when using a literature-based approach to learning (or really any approach to learning)? There are books and school tools everywhere! Whether you’re using a literature-based, or classical, or traditional, or unit-study curriculum, this workshop will offer practical tips on keeping track of your materials and creating a peaceful learning environment. Come join Sandy, Rhonda, and Sheila as they share steps to reach the goal of reclaiming an organized homeschool.
