Larissa loves doing life and school with her friends, Dalena and Devan, and her passion is to support them and other homeschool moms through her skills as an organizer and teacher. Her attention to detail and practical mindset enable Dalena's visions to become a reality.
Larissa is mom to three precious kiddos - 13-year-old Danny, 11-year-old Emily, and 1-year-old Corby. She and her husband, David, have ministered in a rural church for over 13 years, where Larissa serves as choir director and the chairman of the music committee. They have also fostered several children, and were blessed to adopt.
Larissa was homeschooled as a child, and loved her experience. She always knew in the back of her mind that she would homeschool her own children, and after adopting, she and her husband saw that keeping their children home would be best. They are in their 9th year homeschooling!
Larissa was part of a local co-op until she joined up with Dalena and Devan in 2017. Together, they taught their kids a variety of subjects, and Larissa started teaching through the Writing and Rhetoric curriculum by Classical Academic Press. She continues to teach these books in the co-op they started, Apollos Schole Community.
Larissa has also taught Shurley English, Choir, Music History, Children's Songs, Children's Games from Around the World, and Elementary Science. She has been the Secretary of Apollos Schole Community since it began. She also serves as secretary for the local homeschool choir director.
