JD, Harvard Law School 
BA, Yale College

Growing up outside Boston, Karin Morin was the child who had to be gently reminded to put down her book so she could eat, play, or sleep. During college, she read mostly in French and Russian, with a sprinkle of German thrown in for fun. After college, she worked briefly in a job where she didn't have enough work to do, so she filled her time with English literature. Eventually she stopped reading long enough to marry her high school sweetheart. He has put up with her reading habits for over 30 years of marriage.

While briefly living in northern Maine, Karin and her husband began the wonderful adventure of home education with their children. In 2007, back in the Boston area, a homeschooling friend asked Karin to start teaching literature to homeschooled middle and high school students. What a great idea! Karin could read and re-read wonderful books, her kids could have an English class with other homeschoolers, and everyone would have a great time learning more about literature. Much to her surprise, Karin found that she enjoyed teaching (almost) as much as reading. After many years in a variety of homeschool settings, ranging from dining room tables to a church-based co-op, she enjoys teaching even more than she did at the beginning. Now she is enjoying an additional challenge—helping more homeschoolers enjoy great literature through HSLDA Online Academy.

Karin has been teaching with the Academy since 2016.
