Online Meetup – Deschooling: It’s A Thing!

I am so excited to announce a collaboration between Eclectic Learning Network, Melissa Bingham, and myself. A monthly, cost-free, meet-up for parents and caregivers — Deschooling: It’s A Thing! Together we will explore and work through the life-long process of Deschooling in all of its many forms and particularly as it relates to our relationships, especially with young people. See more details, and sign-up, on Eclectic Learning Network’s website.

Deschooling is a life-long, self-paced journey to unpack, acknowledge, and decenter harmful practices that affect the ways we engage and hold space in relationships through deep questioning and pivot practice toward respectful and trust-centered relationships.

"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." -John Dewey I am a born and raised unschooler: my first school was college. My self-directed education has been such a strong influence that I have committed my life's work to advocating for SDE for all. I have had the opportunity to to help others learn in a variety of ways, including teaching Martial Arts since I was 14 years old. I currently work as an early childhood educator in a play-based early learning center in Seattle. In addition to my work with children and families, I write, present, and facilitate workshops on early education. I am also helping to organize with the Alliance for Self-Directed Education. To further my career and education, I am currently attending grad school at the Portland State University distance program in early childhood education.
