Kelly Lovejoy started unschooling her boys, Cameron (30) and Duncan (22), after pulling Cameron out of a college prep school after 6th grade. Duncan never went to school. Her third child was the Live and Learn Unschooling Conference, which was the very first conference devoted entirely to unschooling and spawned all unschooling conferences that followed, including the Northeast Unschooling Conference.
She stepped away from the unschooling scene a few years ago to move to NC and build a house. She was the architect, general contractor, and designer of her "Death House" in the mountains of NC. She is now working hard to turn her ten acres of pasture into a working Far Flung Farm.
Currently Cameron is a working poet, writing and dancing in far away New Orleans. Duncan is still at home; he is in college working towards his mathematics/computer major.
Marji Zintz...mom to a now-grown, always unschooled human (the most awesome human I know); lover and partner to my darling Alfredo; professional performing musician; and parent coach/educator in practice since 2012.
I live in the Catskill Mountains region of New York in an old country-church-made-into-a-home, I perform a lot, help and support parents to learn more peaceful ways A LOT, and I snuggle our elder kitty Zamm (who's STILL afraid of Alfredo). I also garden and bike and cook and totally love this life!!!
