Dr. Lainna Callentine is a guest professor at Wheaton College, author, speaker, pediatrician, and homeschool mother who has taught at all levels from elementary to doctorate. Dr. Callentine received her B.A. from Northwestern University, where she studied both human development and social policy while competing on a full athletic scholarship in basketball. She holds a master’s degree in education and an M.D. from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Callentine left formal medicine in the E.R. to stay home and homeschool her three children.

Dr. Callentine has dedicated herself to being a lifelong child and family advocate—and to fight to rebuild the American family—because she believes that children need their parents more than ever, in order to grow into healthy, spiritually mature adults.
Teaching High School Science
Science offers an opportunity for your child to explore, wonder, and learn about our awesome God and the order He has placed in our world. Unfortunately, science is also one of those fields of study that many homeschooling parents find extremely intimidating. Understand the new science educational standards and what relevance they have to all students, and why having a proficient knowledge of evolution needs to be incorporated into your students’ understanding when defending the Christian worldview. Dr. Callentine will help you unpack and address your concerns. Whether you student is currently in high school or preparing to enter high school, you will be armed and ready.
