Teaching Philosophy

Horace's goal as an educator is to provide learning experiences that enable children to unlock their potential and grow academically, emotionally, and socially. He employs inquiry and project-based learning often and uses data-driven teaching methods to engage students. Horace wants every one of his students to engage in self-discovery of their passions and he creates a classroom environment where children feel safe exploring and taking risks. He personalizes the curriculum to connect with the student's interests and the larger community around them.

How it works

What is Schoolhouse?

We started SchoolHouse with the intention of helping people start microschools because we saw that it was a better way to learn. That’s been our focus from the beginning and we’ve built the team with that purpose.

We are a team of teachers, school leaders and parents who are simply school nerds. We want to build the best schools in the world, only smaller and in your home..

Teacher Screening Process

We screen and vet every teacher thoroughly and accept between 5-7% of applicants. This is to ensure a high quality education across every SchoolHouse school.

We recruit teachers from a variety of backgrounds including private, public, and charter schools. We interview and offer competitive packages and small class sizes to attract top professionals.

Regarding Covid-19

Safety is our highest priority, for your family, the students we work with, and the teacher. We ask all teachers to follow all CDC, state, and local guidelines as it relates to COVID. Beyond that, we have all families and teacher in a pod agree on certain health guidelines and COVID protocols at the beginning of the pod so that there is not any ambiguity about what is expected.
