Professional facilitator | Self-directed Education practitioner
Anthony Galloway Jr operated in the field of education for 10 years and has experiences in after-school programs, summer camps, collegiate mentoring, Democratic Free Schools, Montessori, and Sudbury schools. Currently, he serves as Co-Director and Facilitator at The Heartwood School, an Agile Learning Center located in Atlanta, Georgia he co-founded in 2016.
He sought out to start a school like Heartwood in order to work towards solutions to the issues that arise from the structures of inequity that he sees are plaguing our current education system. To be blunt, he does not want to be an agent of the assimilation and devaluation machine that oppresses Black, Brown, & First Nation families. Anthony's radical vision for schools and education focuses on creating enriching communities with experiences driven by the learner's interests.
Not wanting to perpetuate more of the same as it relates to education & inequality, Anthony is passionate about the school's sliding-scale tuition and taking students through social-justice and service-learning education modules. He also really enjoys facilitating productive team meetings that are intentional about forging healthy group dynamics and organizational culture. He practices this with students, staff, parents, board members, nonprofit leaders, and even his roommates. Lately Anthony has been coaching founders of education startups through the fellowship programs offered by 4.0 Schools.
