Who We Are



Desiderata began in 1982 as a way to manage the ever-growing crowd of students brought into Dori Spence’s home by parents wishing to have their children share in the success of her homeschool program.  Today Desiderata is managed by her son, Larame, and his wife, Pandi, who continue the tradition of personal interaction with each student combined with advanced educational techniques and technology.

Co-Directors Larame and Pandi bring to the program extensive familiarity with a number of educational venues. They have had direct involvement with: correspondence study, homeschooling, telecourses, internet courses, the U.S. public school system, and universities. This unusual range of personal experiences has helped them gain a unique perspective on the needs of homeschoolers.
