We will be back soon.

My Philosophy

School should be a magical place, full of wonder and joy. That’s why I create contexts where children and adults can approach complex challenges with creativity and confidence. My mission is to make schools more human and learning utterly meaningful.

Our differences shouldn’t divide us, they should bring us together to make new things, to fully engage in solving real problems, to discover the wonder of life and the joy of love.

I speak about how to do this, and I write about it, but most importantly, I actually do it, in a school, and it works. Our differences make us unique. They are our strengths and children who are lucky enough to develop theirs lead meaningful lives. I am happy to share with you.
