Untitled designKristen Montesano studies Child Learning and Development and is in her 2nd year teaching in a democratic school. Passionate about Self-Directed Education, she believes given the time, freedom, and tools to pursue their interests, people of all ages thrive and grow. She believes self-directed learning is the future path of education and allows students to learn not only the knowledge needed for today’s society but also the soft skills such as leadership, creativity, and time management. Kristen hopes Self-Directed Path will spread awareness and understanding of this educational style for lifelong learners.
