It is through others that we develop into ourselves -- Lev Vygotsky


Pedagogy Space promotes educational approaches & wellbeing practices to support lifelong learners.

 "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.

when we


  • Children are born competent and wired for learning and connecting.

  • Children have individual timing, temperament, and developmental stages.

  • Adult self-examination is vital for building meaningful connections.

  • Imperfection, uncertainty, & risks are catalysts for 'meaning-making' & building relationships.


  • Participatory education (socio-constructive) practices that respect the adult-child dynamic.

  • Learning happens through a circular process of action, conceptualization, and evaluation/revisiting.

  • Pedagogical practice that values diversity & equity of the learning community.

  • Pedagogical models supporting wellbeing, responsiveness, and reflective practices.

  • Practices cultivate respect, empathy, and emotional and cultural awareness.
