If you're a teacher, librarian, or parent and you've ever been concerned that:
  • kids spend way too much time at a desk;
  • teachers are underpaid and over-worked;
  • learning should be more like play and less like a job;
  • the big system of education is currently broken;
  • school may not be the same for a long time;
... then you might consider opening your own school. Many people dream of opening a school but aren’t sure what you have to do in order to make it actually work. You find a prime location for a school, but don’t know how to attract students. Or you have families begging you to open a school, but lack the support or financial experience to make it happen.

The one-day Microschool Builders Gathering is designed to bring together aspiring school builders who want to improve and expand their ideas for their schools, allowing them to clarify gaps in their operating processes solidify, to strengthen plans for launching their schools, and to see what it takes to launch your very own school!

"Attending Mara Linaberger‘s micro school building workshop was one of the most encouraging experiences in my 24-year career working with families and children. The information gained through the workshop furthers my mission to empower and support the needs of the individual child in this ever-changing tapestry of society.  The children of today and tomorrow need a safe haven to learn and grow in their own unique way. Mara Linaberger’s program can help every parent and educator enrich the lives of the children as they journey to discover their authentic selves." - Sophia K.
