Notes for Teri Gay Koons

She then spent one year at the UC Santa Cruz campus before returning home to UC San Diego to finish her degree in Sociology. Craig, whom Teri met through Transcendental Meditation, was also completing his final year at UCSD, in Linguistics. Teri went on to San Diego State University to complete her teacher training for primary and special education. She taught for three years in the Chula Vista area.



Notes for Craig LaRue Culpepper

In 1978 Craig and Teri left the U.S. for six months to backpack around the South Pacific. They spent three months of that time in New Zealand, seeing much of the country and decided they would love to return to live there. Back home in San Diego, Terire turned to teaching while Craig took a job as a sailmaker for NorthSails. While there he met the owner of the New Zealand franchise of the company who offered him a job in Auckland, New Zealand. Permanent residency papers were easily obtained as at that time, sailmaking was atthe top of the list of trades needed in the country. So, in September 1980 Craig and Teri returned to Auckland to live. Teri found a job straight away working with special needs pre-schoolers. Craig did sailmaking for awhile then decided to learn more about the farming industry so took various positions in the farming sector until he got on with a fencing gang and learned that trade. It soon became obvious that a large city like Auckland was not the place to be if farming was to be the direction they pursued, so, in January 1982 the shifted to Taumarunui, located in the centre of the North Island, NZ. Teri again found a teaching job with primary aged special needs students and Craig turned his hand at fencing and various other farm work for seven years. They bought and renovated a derelict country cottage on three acres of land, had two children, Tyler James and Jordan Clay, renewed their Christian faith, and saw Craig retrain as a high school English teacher over the course of seven years. Craig then taught at Taumarunui High School for a further seven years while Teri worked part time. The time spent living in a small rural town (pop. about 7000) was a wonderful experience for two city bred people! But, in October 1995 Craig applied for and was appointed to a job in a large Christian School in Tauranga. So in January 1996 saw the Culpeppers shift to Tauranga, a coastal city of 70,000 in the North Island of NZ. Both boys attend Bethlehem College where Craig and Teri (part time) work. the boy's interests include soccer, basketball, softball, volleyball, and keyboard. The beach is only ten minutes away, and summer often finds the Culpeppers there where Craig can renew his surfing skills and the boys body and skim board. The Culpeppers currently attend a Prsebyterian Church where they are veryinvolved with the music team and Sunday school. [Notes by Ken Koons]
