When Work is Play - On Educational Freedom through Unschooling with Angela Harders
In today’s episode, my guest Angela Harders and I explore what happens when play is work or work is play.
Angela shares how she overcame the struggle of having to choose between being a great teacher and being the mom she wanted to be for her daughter. Her background in teaching made her question whether unschooling was possible, but she followed her daughter’s lead and started realizing that it was absolutely beautiful how her curiosity unfolded. This is what led her to form Peaceful Worldschoolers and an umbrella organization for families (PMA) who would like to homeschool with complete educational freedom.
Doing what she loves, she feels that her work is playing and work-life integration becomes effortless.
What we’re talking about…
