Our Board

Helen Hughes


Helen founded Windsor House School, a public school experiment in non-coercive democratic education that’s been running 50 years or so. She also raised three children and is the grandparent of four.

Helen is an activist for social and environmental justice, an advocate for young people and a beloved community member.

After co-founding The Learnary, Helen is now joining the Board to help us grow…and to take all the classes she possibly can!

Cheryl Burdick

Cheryl attended almost all our early classes and has been a huge supporter since our very first day. She brings with her a deep sincerity and a passionate love of learning.

We are thrilled to welcome Cheryl to our Board.
