Representative: Marta Dorigo Salamon

I have been unschooling my daughter – born in 2012 – from the start for a mixture of reasons. We moved to Ireland from Italy in December 2018 and we joined HEN immediately. I am an intuitive healer, but currently my days are happily filled mostly with motherhood and unschooling.

Representative: Sarah Mc Loughlin 085 7192511 /

I have been unschooling my boys for nearly 4 years now in beautiful Connemara. As a wellness coach I’m conscious of finding ways to make things work and I bring that to our homeschooling experience whenever I can. I’m also a second level teacher so I have experience of both sides of the education system.

Representative: Anna

I am a mum to 2 boys (8yo. and 2yo.). We are a bilingual (Russian/English) family living in Sligo for the last 9 years. Both boys are home educated from the start. We are very eclectic in our choices from following a curriculum to child/interest lead learning to unschooling. And yes, parents are perfectly capable of educating their own kids.
