About Us

This blog has been set up to document our new adventure. As a family we are moving from Europe to Montana to set up a school from scratch. Ben Kestner and Lisa Pavlock are both educators with many years experience  around the world including the UK, India, Germany, Belgium and the States.

We have family connections with Western Montana, which is where we were married in 2006, and where our daughter was born a year later.

Ben has been a school principal for the past 7 years and has been an advocate of alternative forms of education which focus on the individual child. He writes a popular blog and has given many workshops and talks. He has experience as an educator in the UK, Germany and Belgium.

Lisa is an EAL teacher and coach. She has had experience teaching and coaching in India, Germany, Belgium and the States. She coaches soccer and basketball.

Marina is 5 years old. She was born in Missoula, Montana and she likes riding her bike, drawing, inventing and watching musicals. Her favorite musicals at the moment are Bugsy Malone and Into the Woods.
