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?
~ Which learning environments actively promote children's learning?
~ How does brain development impact emotions, behavior, and cognition?
~ How do emotions affect attention, memory, and learning?
~ How do we support self-regulation & wellbeing in children?
~ Why is creativity, curiosity, communication, collaboration & critical thinking necessary?
I work with parents, educators, schools, and communities teaching and speaking on inquiry-based learning, socio-constructivist & emotional intelligence theory, and caregiver self-inquiry to best support children's growth and development, from birth to adolescence. I offer workshops & discussion circles based on current brain & child development research & pedagogical innovation. I also consult with schools providing pedagogical support and offer educator & parenting workshops for professional development.
