“I switched my babies to a private microschool because I know they need more support emotionally and definitely more time outside. I made excuses for years: the cost, the drive and commute back into Minneapolis. Finally- I leapt. Because the decision made absolute sense for my babies. Take my advice and get connected with a fabulous woman who is supporting and loving my children and opening their world to a whole new dimension of exploration and self-directed learning.
My kids have been through a lot this past year. This school and the love they have received has changed our lives. Amy is patient, innovative and loves my children as her own. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher!”
My friend Amy, who is the founder of Awakening Spirit, talked to me about how this school could really help her feel a part of something to belong to.
She was so right! It took my daughter a month or so to get the whole routine down and what was expected of her, but she soon was fitting in, feeling comfortable and thriving! She finally felt like she was a part of a community and had an important role every day to fill.
Amy does a great job giving everybody responsibilities and holding expectations high! Everyone feels like they have a job that is important and their own. She gained a ton of confidence and was so proud to tell everybody she met, that she belonged to Awakening Spirit school!
She took on more responsibilities at home and became a happier healthy girl!
Her favorite thing was when they put on their Christmas play. She was Mary, I’ve never seen her so proud to play a part in her life!
Another one of her favorite things was feeding and taking care of all the animals, especially the chickens! She had a part in naming each one and was always so excited to tell me which one she held that day!
This school gave her, her voice back! I am so thankful for all the amazing teachers here who helped her become a girl she is today! I cannot say enough about all of that teachers at this school, they truly love every kid for the person that they are and bring out their gifts so that each child is successful and can SHINE.
Thank you Mrs. Amy, Mr. Aaron, Mr. Kevin and Mr. Thor for pouring confidence and love into my girl! We are forever thankful!.”
