WORK WITH ME
"All children have the right to participatory education where they contribute, are
heard, seen & valued."
-- How do children construct knowledge?
-- Why are children the subjects of rights?
-- How does brain development impact behavior and cognition?
-- How do we support self-regulation in children?
-- How do emotions affect attention, memory, and learning?
I work with parents, educators, schools, and communities teaching and speaking on participatory, social-emotional & strength-based learning, social constructivist theory, and caregiver self-inquiry to best support children's growth and development (during birth to adolescence), based on current brain & child development research & pedagogical innovation. I also consult with schools providing program/classroom support and offer educator & parenting workshops for professional development.
