About The Event

Come join us in Washington, DC, USA for a fun-filled and community-centered worldschooling gathering November 16 - 22, 2024.

The Worldschool Pop-Up Hub provides super casual, budget-friendly opportunities to gather, connect with other worldschoolers, learn about the local area, instill new friendships, share your insights, and immerse in a friendly, accepting mobile community. Our activities highlight local nature, history, food, and culture... but you'll also have plenty of time to relax, get to know each other, and even stray from the itinerary to add activities that cater to the group's interests.

Pop in for a few days or the full week. Join as many activities as you'd like. It's up to you!

Our itinerary will include activities such as the following:

*National Mall

*United States National Arboretum

*Winter Ice Skating

*Smithsonian National Museums 

*Downtown Holiday Market

*War Memorials

*Union Market

*Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

Add-on option: a day trip to Old Town Alexandria

I’m Tara, and I’m traveling with my family of four with two kids (son is 13 and daughter is 11).  My husband and I early retired in 2021, and we moved from Houston to Spain where we’ve spent the last two years until the end of June 2023.

My husband worked in accounting while I was an art educator for the previous 11 years (experience from PreK age through to Seniors in HS). Prior to the classroom, I worked in museum education and advertising. My passions, interests, and experience made the leap to worldschooling right up my alley! One of my favorite places in the world (so far) is NYC. I may be biased since I spent most of my 20s in NYC. I love big cities, but I also love getting out of my comfort zone and experiencing new things (including smaller places like Granada).

After two years of full immersion in Granada, Spain, we are now full-time nomadic travelers / worldschoolers. We currently plan to slow travel for two years and then apply for Spanish visas again (which would put our oldest at ESO 3 age or US High School age). But who knows how our plans may evolve as we travel full-time?

We hosted our first Worldschool Pop-Up in Budapest in November 2023 and a second in Osaka in March 2024. We had a blast!  We hope to meet you in Washington DC.


The area around the National Mall will be most central to a majority of our planned activities. Wherever you choose to stay, we recommend looking for close access to public transportation. 

From Google: “The safest areas to stay around in Washington D.C. are Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Downtown D.C. and Adams Morgan. These neighborhoods have low violent crime rates and are frequented by tourists. Georgetown is an older town which brings an antique charm and offers travelers green space. One thing to note about Georgetown is that it does not have a metro station, so it is not a very central place to stay. It is a great place for families and luxury travelers to stay. While Dupont Circle still has a historic feel to it, it is much more modern and even has a thriving art community. This area near Capitol Hill is more central and has closer proximity to some popular attractions.”
