Meet the Founder - Dell Self
Dell began homeschooling the youngest son in kindergarten in August 1999. A few years later, she founded Ebony Homeschoolers and became its first support group leader. Shortly after that she was elected to the administrative board (formerly Board of Directors) of Memphis-area Home Education Association (MHEA) where she served in the position of vice president for eight years.
Dell has worn a number of hats. A former specialist for the U.S. Department of Education, assistant treasurer of the Memphis Christian Women's Club, worship leader for "A Mother's Touch" Bible study, and entrepreneur, as well as a founding member and former vice-president of the Memphis chapter of Mocha Moms. Dell has hung up most of those hats to pursue the homeschooling endeavor as well as a career as a Christian speaker, certified public speaking coach, and book coach. Dell has a passion for encouraging and inspiring others through her uniquely "Dell" presentations. This national conference speaker is inspiring and delightfully funny, as she teaches public speaking and shares practical insights for everyday living in Christ.
Dell has been married since 1984. Their union has produced three sons.
