The Reggio-Emilia Approach
Student Voices
Ginny was awesome. She really took into consideration our needs as learners and she made the class interesting and clear. I learned new things from her about students with disabilities, which is not an easy thing to say when you’ve already been a special ed. teacher for 8 years.
The Essential Orton-Gillingham

The idea of taking mindful moments when doing routine tasks seems very manageable and applicable, even with teaching remotely

I feel like I got so much about food justice from this class, in addition to information about plants and planting. I also got some terrific resources for working with kids and ideas for good activities.
