Plenary Speakers

Terri Woods is a mom of 9 children with over 20 years experience in homeschooling. When she's not trying to read all the classics she never read growing up, she's growing flowers and a floral business with her oldest daughter. She welcomed her first grandbaby this past year and now feels all is right with the world!! Terri is a member of the Wild+Free community and speaks at a few other conferences, but mostly loves being home and having tons of friends and family gather round the table at their little old house on a small goat farm in Alabama. You can find her on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/woodsermom/ and https://www.instagram.com/field_and_forage/

She is currently home educating her three youngest children for the long haul. Melissa is a self-proclaimed bibliophile who also enjoys cooking and being with her family. She spends her free time studying different philosophies of education, facilitating a monthly Charlotte Mason Study Group and other book clubs, as well as blogging at http://reflectionsfromdrywoodcreek.blogspot.com/.
