At Makarios Community School students have the option of learning in any format they want, one of these is called Problem-Based Learning or Project-Based learning or PBL.

Who were your favorite teachers? Chances are, they’re your favorite for reasons beyond teaching. We all know that great teachers not only teach lessons; they are also interesting people to get to be around and who have great relationships with students.

They wake up and immediately reach for their phones. They get in the car and immediately pull out their DS. Their faces are aglow, and you can see the reflection of their devices in their dilated pupils. Screen time for kids has been a hot topic ever since the first handheld device came out almost half a century ago. We still struggle every day with our children's faces glued to the screen. Sometimes we may even find; we're guilty of that as well!continue reading
The other day when we were talking about public school and your Democratic Free School (Makarios), we realized that…
- We’ve never really explained to you why you’ve never been to public school.
- Within this absence of explanation, you’ve made up some pretty wacky reasons.

July 17, 2012, is a day forever burned in my memory. It is the day that I witnessed my son have his first grand mal seizure. He was nine years old. It is also the day that began our family journey toward learning about epilepsy and the number of kids on the autism spectrum that struggle with this comorbid condition.continue reading
This week a new parent at the school asked me: So do you all get a paycheck? Or are you all volunteers? Short of a discourse about how we each have justified working at what amounts to being a burger flipper, I just smiled and said: some of both.
