Alpha Omega Publications® is pleased to recognize Janella Goad of Indian Valley, Virginia, as AOP's November 2009 Homeschool Parent of the Month. In recognition of her homeschooling efforts, Janella will receive a $50 AOP gift certificate that's good toward the purchase of Switched-On Schoolhouse®, LIFEPAC®, Horizons, or The Weaver Curriculum®.

Despite opposition from her immediate family and others, Janella listened to God's call and has homeschooled her two daughters for many years. Dedicated to her children's education, Janella doesn't allow anything to distract her during school time. She remains focused in teaching her daughters academics, as well as important life skills in cooking, gardening, sewing, and cleaning. Now in seventh and ninth grade, Janella's daughters are respectful, polite, and well-behaved children who enjoy extracurricular activities in music.


For all her dedication and hard work that sets her apart as a shining example to other homeschooling parents, Alpha Omega Publications honors Janella Goad as AOP's November Homeschool Parent of the Month!
