Elizabeth Bauman holds a BA from Mercer University and a M.Ed. from UNC-Chapel Hill. She homeschooled both of her children through middle and high school. Elizabeth and her daughter co-authored two children’s picture books, Hope’s Colors and Homeschooling Hope. They donate a portion of the proceeds to Autism Speaks. Her new book, Treasured and Teachable, will be available in July. It describes the journey from special ed to college. Her vision is to help homeschooled children, including those on the autism spectrum, reach their full potential. Her two children participated in Georgia’s Move On When Ready/dual enrollment program and both received HOPE scholarships. Her son is an Eagle Scout who earned a BBA in finance. Her daughter is a college senior and the recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award and the President’s Volunteer Service Award. In two workshops, Elizabeth will share practical advice and personal stories to help homeschoolers achieve their academic and community service goals.
