Speaker: Joe Tyler
Joe and Zan Tyler began homeschooling in 1984, when the State Superintendent of Education threatened Zan with jail. Since then, Joe has been very involved in homeschooling, both through his own family and the homeschool community at large. In 1990, Joe was a founding board member of the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS) and currently serves as the Chairman of the SCAIHS
Board. Joe also serves on the Board for Excelsior Academy, a large homeschool co-op that the Tylers founded. He has served as an elder in his church since 1984 and has taught parenting and marriage Sunday School classes and Bible Studies. Joe enjoys speaking with Zan at homeschooling conferences both nationally and internationally. Joe is the President of Followers in Fellowship, a 501c3 organization committed to preserving and advancing Christian education by supporting homeschool groups. He spent thirty years in the corporate world as an information systems project manager. He and his wife, Zan, spent 21 years homeschooling their three children from kindergarten through high school. Ty manages small businesses, John is a lawyer with the SC Housing Authority, and Elizabeth is currently an executive producer with a major network in Los Angeles. All three children attended college on a variety of scholarships. The Tylers have also been blessed with two wonderful daughters-in-law, a fabulous son-in-law, and eight grandchildren.
