Teaching Philosophy

Ever since I began my studies in teaching and learning, I have been passionate and dedicated in my commitment to fostering positive student learning outcomes through innovative instructional practices with an emphasis on social-emotional development. Empowering students to utilize their unique perspectives to positively engage with the world around them in order to change the trajectory of educational outcomes is something that not only drives my career goals but also remains at the core of all of my pedagogical choices. I am therefore on a mission to help teachers, students, and parents understand what it really means to teach and learn. My driving purpose in this field is to help provide ALL students with an education they deserve. An education that removes socially constructed obstacles to learning, guides students to realize and activate their unique potential, and helps them to believe that their voice matters and that their contributions are invaluable. I firmly believe that quality education is an inherent right and that no socially constructed barrier - race, class, (dis)ability, sex, gender identity, etc. - should hinder access to that right.

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.
