Education Podcasts >

On the Life as a Lifeschooler podcast, Danielle Papageorgiou will seek to explore this definition in all its aspects, and to bring exposure to the educational value of the simple things we do every day with our children. In this podcast, she will interview other lifeschoolers, as well as popular homeschool leaders to discuss the idea of lifeschooling and what it looks like in various family situations. Some of her favorite guests are the “homeschool pioneers” who educated their children quite differently than according to the traditional model…wisdom that has been largely forgotten in today’s homeschool culture. Danielle has been homeschooling, or “lifeschooling,” for 14 years and started the biennial Lifeschooling Conference in 2016. She has a passion for helping other homeschoolers learn how to homeschool in a way that does not compete with family life, but actually enhances it and draws out each child’s unique gifts.
