The Unschooling Happiness Project

ABOUT Sara McGrath

Sara McGrath
I'm mom to 3 girls. I live near Seattle and write articles, do transcription, and write books.



Unschooling means so much more than a hands-on, child-directed, and experience-based way of learning. It doesn't describe a specific alternative to schooling. It just gets schooling out of the way so various unique dynamic personal creative ways of growing up, living, participating, and contributing to communities can develop.

It all started shortly after my birth as I observed the rhythms of life on this planet…but let’s skip ahead. My more intense journey toward unschooling began while breastfeeding my first child.
