Who We Are

We are Charlotte and Benjamin, a couple who believe in progressive education, which, to us, simply means keeping learners’ needs in mind when designing curriculum…or really any learning experience (inside and outside the classroom since learning happens everywhere). We are convinced that learning is a personal experience that happens when the learner is active and creative, identifies with the experience (finding meaning), and builds on specialized knowledge. We invite you to read our blog and watch our videos as they may be the starting point of a conversation between us.
