Designed for those who guide, nurture, and inspire children at home, in school, and in early child care settings. For our first Book Talk series, we will be diving into “from Teaching to Thinking: A Pedagogy for Reimagining Our Work By Ann Pelo & Margie Carter.” 

No Time to Read . . . Don’t Worry, We Got You!

Don’t worry if you haven’t had the chance to read the entire book or if you’re struggling to manage time to read the next weekly section. Life is busy. Calendars are full. Intentions are good. But sometimes it’s just not possible to find time to read. Don’t worry at all! We’ve got you covered ~ we’ll provide you with everything you need in the moment during the book talk! Sessions run for about 90 minutes ~ just the perfect amount of time to fit into your evening. 

Here’s How We’ll Roll

We’ll have selections chosen and we’ll share them with you as we go. It’s a responsive conversation, deeply reflective, and based on the sharing, experiences, and dialogue of each other ~ just like a real conversation! There’s no stress attached and it’s a perfect way to get reconnected, realigned, and rejuvenated with your passion for education. Professional conversation with a whole group of like-minded educators in the comfort of your own home ~ what could be better?

We hope you’ll join us!

from Teaching to Thinking: A Pedagogy for Reimagining Our Works By Ann Pelo and Margie Carter

This series is designed for educators and parents looking to gain insight into the Reggio Emilia approach to education. Examine some of the rich history, philosophy, principles, practices, and projects that have emerged from this world renowned approach to learning. Discover how the Reggio Emilia approach is so much more than burlap and baskets. Explore how this philosophical approach to life, learning, and education is ‘a way of being’ built upon relationships, and the metaphorical understanding of the Hundred Languages of Children. Designed for those who guide and nurture children at home, in traditional and non-traditional school environments, and in early child care settings.

Our sessions are led by an educational leader who has traveled and studied intensively in the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy through the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre and Reggio Children. Currently planning another trip to Reggio Emilia to continue her studies and further her understandings, Susan Wright, Founder of Nurtured Inspirations, embraces a Reggio Emilia inspired way of being in life, learning, and education. As a practicing Kindergarten Specialist with over 32 years in the field of education as a Teacher, she had worked with her board of education and the Ministry of Ontario Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat Student Work Study Initiative Teacher and Researcher for six years. Susan’s passion and commitment to sharing her understanding of the Reggio Emilia approach inspires her investment in learning relationships with educators and parents around the world.
