Rae was home schooled from grade 1 through 12 and enjoyed every minute of the journey.   In the LaRocque house, learning was fun!  Whether it was racing with her sister to complete the math lesson first (with the fewest mistakes), researching every current or passing interest, reading as often as possible, or working with their menagerie of farm pets, Rae's parents taught her that learning is not just something that happens in a classroom from 9 to 3 on weekdays. Learning happens everywhere and should be enjoyable!

Nicole Noster was home educated for 10 years (Gr. 3 – 12) and upon graduating, obtained her Bachelor of Liberal Arts from Thomas Aquinas College, a classical liberal arts college in California. The College uses only primary sources, in particular the great books of Western civilization, to teach students to think logically and objectively across an array of subjects. Rather than lecture, professors guide students using Socratic dialogue, a process that Nicole realized as ideal for prompting students to grapple with questions and come to the answers as conclusions rather than memorized information. After graduation, Nicole worked in program development and management, putting her skills to good use with programs she believed in. Nicole and her husband, Simon, home school their 4 children and strive to always create a culture of learning in their home. In some of her random free time, she likes to garden, help on the family farm, perform choral music, and read lots of everything.

Terry is happily married to Richard, and she spent 26 years home educating their four daughters:  Natasha, Rachel, Mikayla and Julia.  She loves the Charlotte Mason Philosophy, Unit Studies and really enjoyed eclectic learning with lots of hands on learning and books when home schooling the girls.  

Carolyn's school experience growing up varied from a local school in Central America, a year in a one room country school in Canada, a year being home schooled and grade12 in a large modern high school in Calgary.   Those transitions taught her that the methods used with education were not as important as her own personal motivation to learn.

Melissa was raised on fresh air, hard work, and unconditional love in rural north-eastern Alberta. She was "officially"  homeschooled for the second half of her school years, but was introduced to learning at home well before gaining the title of homeschooler. The second-oldest of four sisters, Melissa learned the truth of the proverb, "Many hands make light work," and discovered that laughing with a sister over a shared chore made the time pass more quickly.

Joshua loves God, his wife Laura, and two children Dixon and Savannah. 

Homeschooling and constant learning was a way of life growing up in the Stromberg household, something Joshua always planned to pass on for his kids. Joshua by his choice did a year of primary, and a year of secondary in public school, so he has seen both sides. He believes in the power of home educating. Learning at home was always much easier for him. He’d always try to get his week's worth of school done fast as he could so he could spend more time doing the sports that he loved, or reading.

Christian Bekolay comes from a family of 11 kids, and was home schooled from grade 2 through 12 (with his family joining WISDOM in its second year). His childhood consisted of many hours spent in the forest behind his home, which became an imaginary world of endless possibilities. This creative brain also exercised itself with many LEGO sculptures, pencil drawings, plasticine models, and developing musical ability.

Naomi started working with WISDOM in 2005... actually, much longer if you consider that the original WISDOM office was in the front room of her childhood home.  Over the years of formally working for WISDOM her work evolved from odd jobs, stuffing magazines and cleaning the office to filing and print management. After a while her role developed into Editorial Assistant and Art Design Technician. She became a font nerd and InD layering geek who loves to make things beautiful to look at and attractive to read.
