I am currently Head of The Learning Project, Ibiza. A self-directed, democratic learning space.
Previously , I was co-founder of Glacier Lake School in Montana, USA, school which focuses on Self-directed learning and democracy and was the first school of it’s type in the State of Montana. I have been a school principal in International schools in Germany and Belgium and a teacher in the UK.
I was a key organiser of TedxKids Brussels and was a speaker at TedxBrussels in November 2012, the largest Tedx event in the world.
My Strengths include:
I believe that the school system prevalent in our world needs re-thinking quickly. We need to get away from the de-personalized and de-motivational system most children face and focus on curiosity, deep exploration and action within a framework which focuses on giving students the responsibility for learning based on their passions and interests.
