About the Speakers

1621527338-c444d1b8c83dccdf Sheila DelCharco
Sonlight Mentor
With a degree in secondary English education, Sonlight was an obvious choice when Sheila DelCharco decided to homeschool her three children. When her oldest asked to go to a small Christian high school, Sheila was concerned about he would transition to the classroom environment. Her fears were laid to rest when she saw his first report card, and even more so when she sat in on a class. He graduated high school with honors and has graduated from the University of Florida in Finance. Her other two children homeschooled through high school and were accepted to the honor's program at the University of North Florida. Sheila is convinced that exposing them to all those books over the years is what led them to this point. Because of her passion for literature-based learning, she is a veteran Sonlight consultant, drawing on her own experience when speaking with families at homeschool conventions for the past 18 years.

1621527332-a2d96ae293d58c5e Rhonda Helmreich
Sonlight Mentor
Rhonda Helmreich currently teaches high school literature and writing at TNPC, a Home School Cooperative which she co-founded in 1999. Her teaching career began in public schools, where she received awards for innovative literature-based instructional methods. When the time came to homeschool her own five children, she aimed to raise passionate followers of Christ with critical thinking skills and a heart for reaching the world. Sonlight, with its focus on great literature, became her curriculum of choice. Her home-school nest now empty, Rhonda enjoys sharing her teaching insights with others.

S Judy Wnuk
Marketing Sales Manager
Judy Wnuk is a retired homeschool teacher of three amazing students. She spent 20+ years using literature-based learning with her own children and sharing it with families across the US and Canada through her work with Sonlight. She has a passion for encouraging parents, young and old, as they navigate the journey of raising their children. She and her husband of 36 years have enjoyed the privilege of facilitating marriage and parenting classes, and she likes nothing better than to mentor moms that God brings across her path.

She is an avid afterschooler and volunteers much of her time in her local community. As Sonlight's community manager, she enjoys encouraging and enriching homeschools through conversations, content, and community.
