Helping Children Do Amazing Things


 

 
 

I believe children can do anything.

I love to watch children learn to do things that we think only adults can do.

Make a soufflé. Design a tile floor. Write a novel.

I believe that children can do anything with proper guidance, support, and skills.

I provide that support.

Beauty is Important

Beauty is important.

I help children learn to pay attention to the aesthetic aspects of the work they do. It could be the presentation of a plate of food, of a sentence, or of a final report.

Beauty makes it important.

Senses Create Memory

I am convinced that in order for children to learn and remember things, they must have all of their senses fully engaged.

It is not enough to tell a child about something.

They must taste it, touch it, feel its texture and its color, hear its melody, squish it between their toes.

I help children to dive into their learning with their whole beings, and give them permission to get good and messy.

Cultivating Joy

There is a moment-- we've all seen it-- when a child learns to do something for the first time, and their face lights up. In that moment their whole face says:

"Yes! I love this!"

They radiate a sense of pride, of joy, of confidence and of self-satisfaction.

You can watch it happen-- that moment when they integrate that new thing into the core set of things they can do well, and love to do. 

I live for those moments. I cultivate those moments. I teach for those moments. 

I believe we can help children can do anything, with joy, confidence and pride.
