Simon grew up on a farm in rural Alberta where he was home schooled from kindergarten through grade 12.  He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Thomas Aquinas College in California, followed by a Bachelor of Education from Concordia University of Edmonton.  Simon taught in the separate school system in Cold Lake before joining the WISDOM family as a facilitator in 2014.  Having worked in several capacities with WISDOM/Trinity over the years, Simon now administrates the WISDOM home schooling program as Principal of Trinity Christian School Association.  Simon and his wife, Nicole, are the proud home schooling parents of four beautiful children, and feel blessed to experience the joys of their life in rural Alberta.

Marlane is WISDOM's Associate Director; and she takes the WISDOM ministry to heart. Home schooling has long been her way of life, and she draws from her personal life when assisting WISDOM families and when writing her well-loved column for the WISDOM Family Magazine - "Notes to Myself". Marlane and her husband Ken began home schooling their eldest child while Marlane was pregnant with the fourth of six children. She went through years of struggles and research trying to do "school at home", before adapting her approach to one that nourished a love of learning in her children. She completed home educating with the credit of having taken her six children all the way through high school at home. Now a grandmother of 18, Marlane has taught children of all ages while running a home, serving her community, and meeting the needs of other home schoolers.

Through her work with WISDOM, Marlane has been a part of the trials and victories of education in other people's homes, spending many hours each year - on the phone and in person - assisting parents.

"There are no teachers, only learners - it is my job as a teacher to create a learning environment." - Monty Roberts 

Born to a home where 'baby talk' was never practised and learning was encouraged, TobyLauren was an avid reader and eager adventurer by the age of four. Her first day of school was a much anticipated event, but after continually being given colouring pages to do while classmates completed their lessons, she soon lost interest in formal 'learning'.  She began home schooling in the middle of grade 3, and continued at home through high school, making the most of her time to include training horses and helping on the family farm, learning piano and violin, painting and writing.
