Dave & Michele Minier
Region 2 Representatives
Our home-educating adventure began when our eldest son was entering kindergarten. We had a homeschooling friend tell us “You can do it!” just when we needed the encouragement. We have been homeschooling now since 2003. The homeschoolers we met were very open to letting us into their homes to “see” what homeschooling looked like. We found the INCH Conference our first year and have been coming to it ever since. It has been a much needed resource enabling and encouraging us along the way.
Dave and I have 3 sons and live in the Gaylord area. We have been actively involved for years in different capacities in our local homeschool groups. Currently Michele is a board member for C.H.N.M and Dave is an archery coach. Two of our boys have graduated high school and gone on to college. We love home-educating and encouraging others in their journey. Homeschooling can be costly, in time and effort, but the results truly are priceless!
