As a successful teacher, founder Steve Demme was asked to teach math to a homeschool co-op in Massachusetts. Steve combined his knowledge of curriculum with his experience as a teacher and taught math using a multisensory skill-based approach.
Steve developed worksheets for the students to take home and practice what they had learned with their parents. When approached by parents who asked to purchase the materials for the course, Steve began producing and selling the workbook and provided training sessions for parents on his instruction methods.
Before long, one simple course grew into a full math curriculum, including distinctive integer blocks and video lessons.
Steve and his wife, Sandra, have been married since 1979. They have been blessed with four sons, three lovely daughters-in-law, and several grandchildren. Steve has spent years working with youth as a teacher in schools (both public and Christian); as a pastor and youth leader in churches; and as a counselor and camp director at summer camps.
Steve is also the founder of Building Faith Families, a collection of resources developed to strengthen, teach, and encourage families as they seek to follow the biblical model for the Christian home. He produces a monthly newsletter, a weekly podcast, and a blog.
