Video: Was I Prepared for Life?

Was I Prepared for Life? My Youtube Channel. September 2021.

This video includes interviews with my parents — the people who first decided my brother and I shouldn’t have to go to school. I’m super excited to share this with you all.

One of the biggest worries we constantly hear (and experience) about unschoolers is whether or not they were “prepared for life.” Do we have the skills we need to get jobs, survive, and even thrive? What about managing relationships? What does “prepared for life” even mean?

So here it is: was I prepared for life?

"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.
