Suncoast InEd Meetup

May the Force Be With You - Education Meet Up

Saturday, May 4th, 2024

We are thrilled to invite you to the inaugural Suncoast InEd meet-up, launching our very own chapter of the Innovative Educators Network (InEd) here on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida!

InEd serves a vital role in supporting educators who are forging new paths in learning. With homeschooling on the rise in Florida, according to the Florida Department of Education, over 154,000 students were homeschooled in Florida in the 2022-23 school year — a 58% increase since 2018, it's apparent that more families in Florida are choosing to homeschool their children and the demand for creative and passionate educators like yourself is greater than ever.

We believe there's enough innovation to go around! By collaborating and building a strong Suncoast InEd community, we can empower each other's educational businesses. The entrepreneurial journey in education can be isolating, and we want to foster a supportive network where we can share ideas, resources, and celebrate one another's achievements.

Join us on May the 4th (because, May the Force Be With You!) for our 1st Suncoast InEd Education Meet-Up at "The Nest" at Robinson Preserve. This exciting event will feature insightful discussions on the current state of education in Florida, along with knowledgeable speakers offering practical resources to fuel your educational ventures.

We are passionate about building a vibrant InEd network of like-minded and supportive educators here on the Suncoast. Together, we can be at the forefront of educational innovation in Florida!
