This week, we’re revisiting a popular compilation episode from last year. Many people have asked me whether any former or current teachers have been interviewed on the podcast. And the answer to that question is a big YES! We have had more than 20 podcast episodes featuring guests who were or are teachers or university professors, who study education, or even who teach education courses.
Does it seem like a strange leap to make from being a teacher to being an unschooler? To me, choosing teaching indicates an interest in children and in learning, so to dive into that even more deeply with their own children through unschooling seems like a rather natural next step to take.
This episode contains snippets from six teachers turned unschoolers sharing about their journey. It’s inspiring to hear from them, especially during this frenzied, “back to school” season. And if you’re interested in hearing more from all of our episodes featuring teachers turned unschoolers, I have a reference page here for you to check out.

The Network is a wonderful online community for parents to connect and engage in candid conversations about living and learning through the lens of unschooling. Our shared goals are to embrace lifelong learning, develop strong and connected relationships with our children, and cultivate a thriving unschooling lifestyle in our families.
This month, our theme is Being Ourselves in the World and we’re looking through the lenses of self-awareness and choice. If you’re curious to learn more, click here!
