Let’s build a better education.
I’ll help you implement learning models and strategies that work in today’s world for today’s students.
In a micro-school, academic load and content are tailored to strengths, challenges, and pace. Students progress only when they demonstrate mastery.
Socially, they interact successfully with a variety of students and teachers on project-based learning and service projects.
Emotionally, they develop self-advocacy skills and self-selected habits of success.
Students also develop mindfulness, and the ability to reflect and set goals. Holistic learning at its best.
The micro-school parent feels immediate relief having a tribe supporting their child.
The collaboration between home and school lightens the load on parents.
Homework typically becomes more relevant, with less busy work and minimal time outside of the school day completing work.
There are also other parents in the community who regularly communicate, adding to a parent’s sense of support.
The micro-school teacher gets to return to the top priority, relationships.
With this ability to get to know each student well as a unique individual, the instruction can be varied and opportunities for student choice and voice are easier to provide.
There is minimal bureaucracy, allowing the teacher to play to their strengths and create learning experiences that feel relevant.
The teacher shifts from authoritative figure to supportive coach.
