In this episode we’ll explore the vision behind creating an unschoolers platform and meet the women behind this vision. We are also honored to announce that our guests, Amy and Michele have joined the For the Love of Learning team as the new co-producers! Our wonderful producer Nina who has been working with us for the last year, who has contributed to over 50 episodes will still be producing one show every month or so, but is scaling back to spend more time with her boys right now. That being said, the For the Love of Learning Family has grown and during the second half of the show, Lainie, Amy and Michele will talk about the future vision for this show, explore new topics and brainstorm new directions live, on-air.

Michele and Amy are the visionaries behind a new gathering called Unschooler’s Platform which is held annually in Chicago. Their vision is to bring folks together who support the choice to homeschool, unschool and/or life learn and enable empowerment and celebrate the wildly fantastic brilliance of the inner drive to learn what is essential for each individual to become their greatest version self , no matter their age, no matter their stage!

The mission of the Unschoolers Platform is to boldly challenge our beliefs and expand our horizons as we co-navigate the awe and wonders of learning. Amy and Michele created the platform to host a broad spectrum of ideas and information that serves to inspire and empower all who are interested in redefining the learning paradigm. Now can you see why these ladies are the perfect fit for our show too!


Amy Jarjusey

Co-Founder, Co-Organizer of Unschoolers Platform + Co-Producer of For the Love of Learning – Voices of the Alternative Education Movement
Amy Jarjusey has an unquenchable thirst for spying a need and fulfilling demands. As a co-founder and sole coordinator of the AJ Collective Workshops she is constantly peering outside the box determined to supply everyone involved with new classes, fresh experiences and a place where families can gather, develop friendships and provide support to one another. Amy doesn’t take “no” for an answer and conversely doesn’t give “no” for an answer! With Amy there is ALWAYS a way — it’s never “DO?” — it’s always “DONE!” On the home front, she and her dedicated husband Seringe, are the anchors to the foundation of life learning that their 5 children are all deeply ingrained in as they sail about their days — crazy busy — but always connected!!

It is with titanic enthusiasm that Michele Kowalski sprang on board to help bring the unschoolers platform to life! Michele loves to see folks of all ages having fun — as well as hugely loving having fun herself. Her buoyant energy and “get in the mix” attitude keep her moving, growing and continually amazed by life. She, and her tenderhearted husband Vlaiko, are devoted to raising their son Hacho (7) with a deep and abiding reverence to his unique spirit. Guiding him gently while basking in the complete grandeur of abandoning the main stream as often as possible. LOOK FOR HER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DANCE FLOOR!!! “Heyyyyyyyyyy!”
