“Janelle has been such a blessing to me this year. Having home schooled my daughter through the public school system, I was quite intimidated when I decided to withdraw her and do it on my own…I attended one of Janelle’s Homeschool 101 seminars and left feeling much more confident in my own abilities…Her patience, warm smile and gracious attitude made me feel comfortable when asking my slew of questions!” Elaine M.
