Primer teachers have more autonomy with fewer students and fewer tasks to juggle. In other words, they have the space to make real impacts on all their students while doing the work they love.
The slow smile on a child’s face when they read their first words. An eruption of giggles as you turn the page in the book. A look of concentration as they count skip count by 5s. The picture they colored just for you.
There they are—the reasons you went into teaching.
But now it seems like there’s just so much pulling you away from capturing those sparks of curiosity and learning.
Between impossible curriculum frameworks, stressful observations by micromanaging administrators, jumping through hoops with new initiatives, and filling out mountains of paperwork, you feel like you have less time to actually teach.
Every once in a while, a thought creeps into the back of your mind: I could do it better than this.
You wish you could shed all the stress that comes along with Big School, hang out your shingle somewhere, and just go back to the basics of teaching and learning.
It would be magical.
Here at Primer Microschools, that’s exactly what we want too. We want to give you the autonomy to follow your vision, create a powerful learning community, and teach in a way that meets kids where they are.
This is your chance to create learning that’s never one-size-fits-all.
Each Primer Microschool brings together a small group of students with an extraordinary in-person teacher from their community. Instruction is tailored to each child’s needs and interests through a blend of in-person and virtual learning. Students have the space to engage in real-world learning driven by their unique passions.
