Yoga buff, skier, chef.
Otto Albrecht Educated outdoors since birth…
I wake up in the morning bouncing and don’t stop until I go to sleep. I ski race, skate board, BMX ride, motorcycle ride, and water ski. I love chicken nuggets with ketchup, Shel Silverstein poems, cooking with my mom and hunting with dad.
Homeschooling is fun because I get to make a lot of choices on my own.
Otto is a super flexible thinker and relates to any learning and playful context without anxiety. Indicative of the variety of educational settings he has experienced in his 8 years of life.
John Albrecht Dad, Educator at Home. Veteran ski racer, motorcycle rider, bicyclist and specialty home builder at Fortress Construction, Lake Tahoe. Born and raised in Tahoe, I continue to work, play, and learn here with my family. I hope to instill a love for the mountains in my son, like my parents did for me.
Cody and Logan are Otto’s cousins, but they are like brothers. Together they are enthusiastic athletes and embrace learning with each other. Cody and Logan are freestyle skiers and trampoline tricksters with an amazing amount of gusto for living life to it’s fullest…much like their mom and dad. Truly an inspiration for us all.
