009. Education Reform in the Home & Schools: An Interview with Heather Baylosis, MSED

Times are changing. The way we parent our kids at home and teach children in schools is shifting. There’s no denying these changes. It’s all part of education reform…and this isn’t your average conversation about it.

Join me for today’s incredibly insightful interview with Heather Baylosis, MSED--a passionate educator here on the island of Maui & mother of two.

What do we mean by education reform?

How we approach our children, their education, parenting, learning styles, and the 'whole self' is different. There’s more of a focus on values, character, collaboration, listening, respect, working together, & community…and Heather & I unpack it all. We talk about brick & mortar school. We talk about homeschool. We talk about modeling.  We make observations. We talk about parenting + teaching (and how the two overlap).

Here are some of the shifts we discuss:

Outdated models of parenting & education

Values (including key ones missing from today’s college graduates!)

Life Long Learning



Working Together

Importance of Movement



And then we take it a step further and talk about ways to approach these changes & be part of the reform in your own home and in your child’s school. And it turns out those approaches are parallel at home and in school:

Practice patience

Educate  yourself on basic child development

Focus on values…and then align your actions & values

Keep practicing (life long learning)

Understand learning styles

Break through the myth that asking for help is a sign of weakness

Tune in and join the conversation! Then hop over to for more great info!
