We are excited to have a plethora of amazing local homeschoolers come to offer their experiences to the Unschoolers Platform! Tuesday of the conference at 11:15am there will be a panel of speakers leading a discussion: “Let’s Talk Philosophies! Meet a panel of homeschool, unschool, and life-learners and dig deeper in the “day-in-the-life” topics!”
One of these amazing speakers on this UP panel is Helen!
Helen Michniewicz facilitates her children’s education while also running her own consulting practice where she assesses and coaches executives across the globe on leadership skills. Helen holds a Master of Science degree in the field of business psychology and has 15 years of research and experience in increasing motivation, optimizing learning, and improving performance at Fortune 500 companies. She’s dedicated her professional career to developing leaders and creating work environments that promote life-long learning. Helen leverages this experience as she guides her children’s education without a formal curriculum. More importantly, choosing a path of life learning is a natural extension of the way that Helen and her husband raise their three daughters, ages 8, 5, and 5. As infants their daughters ate and slept according to their own internal clocks, never on a schedule, and the family continued to follow their own pace and interests shaping their journey together. Always exploring an eclectic mix of methods and theories, such as Waldorf, Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and Place-Based education, Helen’s family takes what works but always stays centered around the core value of natural living and learning. She is honored to be a panelist at The Unschoolers Platform and can’t wait to meet you! Follow her on her Live and Learn Freely Blog, Facebook Page, and Twitter. Helen is also a contributing author at Life Learning Magazine.
