During our Summer Course, At-Home-School Educators will work through specific approaches and strategies to ensure their success during their 2020-2021 school year.

This course is constructed and led by our founder, Mary Miele. Mary is a veteran educator with experience in teaching nursery through high school. She specializes in creating customized at-home-school programs which support the comprehensive and holistic education of children, in partnership with families and schools.

Her innovative course prepares educators to meet the unique circumstances and challenges they will face in changing their perspective and approach to conduct "at-home-schooling" during the COVID-19 pandemic.
