Life is Teacher @ Maestra Vida

AzTlan_Shangrila : Chapter 2

El Tambo, Colombia

(March 21-31st, 2017)


Maestra Vida is a free school (K-thru-12) with an alternative educational system, located in the hills by the forest near El Tambo, Colombia.

The founders, a pair of former public school teachers, believe in having no classroom walls, no bells, no textbooks, no homework, no grading system, mixed-age classes, non-structured personalized learning methods via real-life situations, and respecting students' need for freedom.

This educational model has already been replicated in 8 other municipalities since the school started in 1994 (and counting).

Maestra Vida means "Life is Teacher"
