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.
Some of her favorite memories are readalouds, "Country Day" afternoons with other home school families, and all the busy mornings or afternoons of learning together. Baking, nature walks, sewing, LEGO, Busy Bags, crafts, and so much more filled their days. It was a lovely life and home schooling is still close to her heart.
Both Terry and Richard have volunteered for the WISDOM PAC for many years and love WISDOM. Terry and Richard are also active with AHEA (Alberta Home Education Association) as board members. They are very concerned about educational freedom and parental choice in Alberta and believe in being politically active to protect those freedoms and choices. Terry leads the Vermilion Home School Support Group and loves encouraging home school parents whenever she can.
Terry loves to use a Bullet Journal or Daytimer, loves paper play and cardmaking, and loves reading her Bible and Bible Journaling. She also moderates a few Facebook Pages (including the Alberta Home Education Association Page), speed reads many articles and links daily and loves sharing the best of what she finds with others.
Terry presently has 4 grandchildren under 5 (Natasha and Philipp have 3 and are living in Germany while Rachel and Adam have one and are living close to Gramma and Grampa)! Terry loves watching for (and buying) the best toys, books and educational extras for the grandkids.
It has been a pleasure working in the WISDOM Office and getting to know the WISDOM Home School Family since October 2017. She doesn't have all the answers yet, but will definitely transfer you to someone who can answer your question when you call the WISDOM Office! If you need some encouragement along your home school journey, feel free to call and talk for a bit!
