Today’s show is coming to you live from the Life Without Instructions Conference in Staten Island, NY. Lainie Liberti will interview some of the over 200 attendees, about unschooling, about their families, and about how they are living their Lives without Instructions. Also on hand to answer questions will be Life Without Instructions Conference founder and organizer, and For the Love of Learning Show Co-Producer, Anne Boie.
Anne Boie is an entrepreneur and partner in work, family and play to her husband, David Leahy. She is a dedicated unschooling mother of the four Leahy children, ages 4-15. Several years ago after the birth of their fourth child, they decided to pursue their dream of leaving rural Texas for a more exciting urban location. After researching several options with the help of their children, they chose Hackettstown, New Jersey, located between New York City and Philadelphia, and moved their warehouse of more than a million Lego bricks, two dogs, three cats, four children, one Nana (David’s mom) and all their belongings halfway across the country.
Having previously been active in the Dallas-area unschooling community, Anne next set her sights on the surprising lack of unschooling gatherings in the New York/New Jersey area and decided to fill the need herself. With the help of David, their kids, and a few friends, she created the Life Without Instructions Conference as a means to meet likeminded families for shared learning, fun and community.
Anne is very excited to take on the role of co-producer of the For the Love of Learning show, as a means of exploring ideas about education from people all over the world, and to help create a better world by showing parents that there is another way, they don’t have to blindly follow the crowd when it comes to education and raising happy children.
