Susan, listening to you made my heart and mind full and excited! You put all the pieces together. You’ve pushed our educators and we are excited to dive in and embrace new ways of thinking and knowing.

Linda Simetic

Susan dives deep into academic and pragmatic discourse with educators about how to let student work drive pedagogy.

Susan works with educators to connect ever-evolving theory into practice with the ultimate goal of improved student success.

Tania Peterson
Teacher and Atelier Lead

I just wanted to say I love your mentor reflection journals. They are, as with everything you do, say and emulate, always made with such care and thoughtfulness. You have an incredible sense of style and aesthetic that shows respect, integrity, and professionalism. It shows the importance you place not only working with children but working with educators.

Jessica Leyland
Registered Early Childhood Educator

Susan has an expert ability to teach and connect with her students. She identifies what each child needs from her and implements strategies within her class to meet those needs whether they are emotional, physical, or cognitive. As an educator, I want to do that.

I want all of the children that come into my class to feel the way that Susan makes her students feel. Susan truly models the most exemplary leadership skills with regards to teaching, curriculum planning and connecting with children. I feel blessed to have been a part of her class not only as an educator but as a learner myself.

Susan reinforced and motivated me. I would leave her classroom wishing that she could be my child’s teacher. That’s how amazing I think that she is at what she does with the children in her program!

Jane Butler
Parent, Former Certified Teacher

As a parent with a seven year old boy, I appreciate the tremendous insights that Susan shares through the Nurtured Inspirations Approach and The Seven Pillars of Well-Nurtured Children. I have been looking for something to help nurture and build a solid foundation in my child’s development.

Susan takes a holistic approach to building not only educational fortitude but she also helps support a confident, healthy child through her educational philosophy.

I highly recommend Nurtured Inspirations to anyone that would like to play a part in their children’s development. If we leave it all to classroom-style learning our children are missing out on multiple dimensions of emotional, social, and moral well-being, cognitive function, wellness in their self-identity.

Susan shares such a deep understanding of the pedagogy of learning. Her ability to spark new thinking through dialogue, and support reflective thinking is amazing. She will enliven a passion and joy for learning within your own professional journey in education. .

Abby McEachern, OCT

Teacher

I was absolutely blown away by Susan Wright’s approach to education, and how supportive and engaging she was with both students and parents. What she has created is an inviting, calm, and creative setting for children.

Tania Peterson

Teacher and Atelier Lead

I treasure being a member of Nurtured Inspirations and through these unprecedented times, it has given me solace and a place to connect with like-minded and inspiring educators.

When I have had a particularly challenging day I look forward to picking up where I left off on my Nurtured Inspirations courses to re-energise myself and dedicate time to what I am passionate about.

Susan, as an early childhood educator for over 25 years now, you remind me of my WHY.
I had a sneaky peek at your website last night as a treat to myself. Your website is like a treasured favourite book that I have not yet read to the end and kind of don’t want to because I don’t know what I’ll do with myself if I finish it. It’s also like one of those books you’ve read over and over and still find it fascinating. I savour every moment. Thank you.
