Guest Details

After graduating high school with a GPA of 2.2 and then shifting often between jobs, Philip Mott pursued higher education at the age of 26 and worked to earn a spot on the Dean’s List each semester. Five years of teaching led him to realize the timeline imposed on students was incongruent with the way learning most often happens. His experiences drove him to explore learning methods which honor the learner, the teacher, and learning itself. He now unschools his three children with his wife and writes parenting and education advice for families on his website.
