Teri Kuiper, widowed when her three amazing children were very young, has been life learning with them since they were born. They were at home with her full time from early 2000, up through part of their college years.  All three daughters have now achieved their Associate Degree and are pursuing Bachelor Degrees in their various passions.  Teri has time now to devote to multiple endeavors, such as co coordinating the statewide Love to Learn Homeschool Conference and acting as liaison for the HA-NC membership with the NCDNPE (both under the auspices of the Homeschool Alliance of North Carolina, Inc.).

Teri thrives on travel, reading, spending time with her children, researching and starting new businesses, vermicomposting, raising chickens, building and creating things with her hands and discovering new things to try.
