I am a radical school teacher who works with youth and communities to foster collective liberation. I have been involved with Democratic Education since the mid 1980s as a student, parent, and teacher.

Here you will find stories from my life at a school where kids make their own rules and realities.

The views shared here are my own, not necessarily the official policy or beliefs of Gaia Democratic School, where I am a Board Member and the Executive Director. Gaia DS is an independent K-12 grade democratic free school in Minneapolis, MN.
