Janine Deems has taught elementary and middle school both in the classroom and online in Arizona and Texas since 2001. She manages the Facebook group, Homeschooling with Study.com, where she helps families learn about an engaging homeschool curriculum and how to earn dual credit on Study.
While teaching online, Janine became aware of the growing number of homeschoolers who were looking for an online curriculum. She quickly realized that keeping students engaged and creating a love of learning, were the two biggest challenges she faced. When she became a homeschooling mom herself, she set out to find a curriculum that addressed these challenges and she found it in the homeschool curriculum on Study.com. Over the past two years, she has helped her daughter earn dual credit using Study during her freshman and sophomore years of high school. She now has 60 college credits towards her bachelor's degree and will graduate from a regionally accredited Study partner college at the time she was supposed to graduate high school.
