This week’s #fofcpod is a sweet blend of liberation-focused invitations and an insightful conversation with Amelia Allen Sherwood, a Black Montessori educator who currently serves as the Anti-bias and Anti-racism Director at Elm City Montessori School. Amelia joins us to talk about how the Montessori method has impacted and inspired her to dream and develop communal spaces like Sankofa Learning Center. Stay tuned ‘cause Amelia will be also joining us in a couple of weeks on a Feel Trip episode. Make sure you don’t miss any of our Feel Trip invitations by joining our podcast village.

What brings Amelia joy:

  • Being outside and biking with her kids
  • Watching Carmeon Hamilton win Design Stars and following more Black interior designers on the gram
  • Spending time with her partner and finding moments to love each other
  • Visioning out Sankofa Learning Center with her incredible Advisory Collective
