Galway

Representative:

Marta Dorigo Salamon meleusina@yahoo.it

I have been unschooling my daughter – born in 2012 – from the start for a mixture of reasons. We moved to Ireland from Italy in December 2018 and we joined HEN immediately. I am an intuitive healer, but currently my days are happily filled mostly with motherhood and unschooling.

Sarah Mc Loughlin 085 7192511 / sarahmc92@hotmail.com

I have been unschooling my boys for nearly 4 years now in beautiful Connemara. As a wellness coach I’m conscious of finding ways to make things work and I bring that to our homeschooling experience whenever I can. I’m also a second level teacher so I have experience of both sides of the education system.
