Neurodivergent. Gifted. Too smart for their own good.
If you’re anything like most of the educators (and parents) I’ve talked to over the years, you’ve heard bright children called all kinds of names.

You’ve *also* watched (not-so-idly) by as they’ve gone generally ignored and underserved in traditional education models. 

But the worst part? You know the kids know it, too. 

They are smart, after all–and they’re onto us. 

They know without a doubt that the traditional model cares more about test scores than whether students are happy, healthy and engaged in their education.

And? You’re over it. 
MANY OF US ARE...
And that’s why I’m going to ask you to take a step back for just a second.

The truth is, our lives as educators have been SO dominated by all that’s wrong in the current educational paradigm that we’ve barely had space to think about what things would look like if they were right! 

That’s exactly why I created a FREE worksheet - plus bonus training video - just for empathic educators like you, where I walk you through exactly how to write your own personal education philosophy and get clear on what you DO want to see in the educational space, not just what you DON’T.

Whipping up your own personal education philosophy will help you get clear on:
✔︎ What you believe about education, including it’s purpose and importance
✔︎ What roles you think educators - and students - should play within the space
✔︎ Your top values when it comes to education (aka what truly matters to you)

By the time you’re done, you’ll have a solid foundation for:
✔︎ Advocating more effectively for the children in your classroom
✔︎ Designing your own micro-school 

And then? You’ll learn how to put it all together into a written personal education philosophy that you can use as the foundation to design a values-driven micro-school that meets the needs of your unique community! 

Listen: If we really want to create change, we’ve got to stop focusing on what’s wrong–and start crusading for what’s right.
this is the first step....
For years, I have ran my own micro-school in the Oakland, CA area, helping multitudes of gifted and neurodivergent children learn to love learning again (or for the first time).

If you want to create your own micro-school (or even just advocate more effectively for the gifted, neurodivergent and other children in your current classroom), you need to start by creating your own personal education philosophy. 
Inside, you’ll discover universal truths (and little flickers of light), like:

✔️ Why there’s really no such thing as “the stages of grief”– and you shouldn’t be cruel to yourself if your healing doesn’t follow a linear path 

✔️ The ways grief affects us beyond our emotions – and why it’s okay (and normal) if each day of grieving looks (and feels) different

✔️ Why “grief therapy” isn’t the right path for most people–and what to do instead

When you’re grieving, you feel broken. But just like other things in nature, if we properly take care of our break – if we set and straighten it with wisdom and stitch it back together with a little bit of hope – our broken place can become our greatest strength and greatest source of healing. And it’s okay to do it our way!
