Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we jump start our Home Education series with Shannon Falkenstein, M. Ed. from The New Schools Podcast. Shannon is a Co-Founder and Executive Director of Acton Academy & Montessori in El Salvador, a progressive micro-school innovating education to offer learners skills for the 21st Century.
Shannon is a speaker, facilitator and coach and is the host of The New Schools podcast, which helps families at an inflection point in schooling to explore and choose the best option for their children's learning journey. She is a freedom-lover, explorer and anthropologist at heart, and has lived and studied all over the world.
So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to El Salvador, to speak with Shannon about opportunities that exist in alternative education!
