We are like you: we have an idea and even though we might not be the “experts”, we decided to become expert enough to make it happen.
We are a mother and daughter team – both certified professional educators not currently serving in a classroom. We started talking about the idea for Homeschool Cache and the importance of providing a low cost or low commission marketplace to serve the growing homeschool community. We then realized that we had the skills and ability to develop this ourselves and bring it online at a lower cost than most marketplace sites.
Alana: I have wanted to be a programmer since I was in college. I instead majored in Business Administration because I was told a computer science degree required high math skills – something I did not have. Upon graduation, I served in the Army as an HR officer and was able to spend some of my time in automation. After I retired from the Army, I taught middle school and completed a graduate degree related to both education and technology. I had left the classroom to develop a classroom management app, and then Taylor and I started talking about building Homeschool Cache.
We hope that Homeschool Cache helps you in some way to attain your dream. Maybe you will be able to homeschool your children better, longer, and easier? We invite you to join our community and share your experiences with us.
