  1. Thanks for having her on! I’ve been following her on FB for a little over a year now, and she helped me tremendously as I transitioned to educating my kids at home.

  2. This was an interesting podcast, thanks so much for having Ana Martin on. I really appreciate the “follow the child” model of education. I’d be interested to hear shows from institutions that support that model (such as Sudbury Valley) in addition to homeschoolers.
