My wife, Jen, and I have been a supporter of the Agile Learning approach since we first heard about it in December of 2015. It even led us to try and start our own school (Emerson ALC) in Charleston, South Carolina, Alas, that was not in the cards for us, but, we’ve forged on by using the Agile Learning method to teach our young sons. Here’s where I can blog about that experience. Expect to read an honest account, that includes all of the highs, lows, and in-betweens of living an Agile life.

How Did We Get Here? – Part 1

February 19, 2016

As Jen and I move forward with our ALC startup, it’s always good to look back at the past to see where we came from. (This is part one. Part two is here. Part three.) The short answer: the Sudbury model. Back in early 2014, our oldest son turned three.… Read more
