The New Learning Culture™ (NLC)  Consulting offers resources, support, and a complete customizable school model for schools, teachers, and parents who are dedicated to innovative, learner-friendly education in Preschool, K through 8 and High School.

School can be a warm, welcoming, and enriching place. Drawing from the practices of leading-edge schools in Europe and in America, and the wisdom of child-centered education – including Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia – the NLC school model focuses on emotional health and experiential learning. Rather than memorizing for tests, learners acquire hands-on creative, academic, and social skills at their own pace.

The concept—school as a joyful, nourishing learning center— inspired Carmen Gamper to become a teacher, co-creator, and director in innovative, alternative schools in Italy and in Austria.

Now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Carmen supports innovative educators, inspired teachers, and committed parents to embrace new, heart-based ways to teach and learn that deeply fulfill both teacher and learner.
