All Things Are Possible Teacher Podcast


Apr 30, 2024

You’ve probably heard a bit about microschools, homeschool hybrids, and learning pods, right? These are buzzwords that have been floating around, especially if you want to start a non-traditional schooling option for children. They all sound somewhat similar, and it can be a little tricky to keep them straight. You might be wondering, "Don't all these just boil down to teaching a few kids at a time in more personalized ways?" Well, yes... but there’s a bit more to it than that.

Each of these models has its own unique flavor, its own way of doing things, which means they affect your day-to-day teaching and how you run your teacher business in different ways. It’s kind of like picking a new phone—lots seem similar until you get into the features and find what really works for you.

For many of us, the dream is to step out of the regular classroom grind, where you can infuse your teaching with your own style and philosophy without being boxed in by the usual school rules. Picking the right model isn’t just about teaching differently; it’s about creating an educational space where you can thrive as both a teacher and a business owner.

Today, we’re going to clear up the confusion about microschools, homeschool hybrids, and learning pods. We’ll talk about what makes each one unique, and share stories from teachers who are rocking each model. Whether you’re looking to start from scratch or just tweak your current setup, knowing your options will help you carve out a path that’s both rewarding and personally suited to your teaching style.

Are you ready, let’s get started.
