Giveaway: The Art of Land-Based Early Learning

Tuesday, February 27, 2018




When a book is a true work of art, you cannot help but promote it to anyone and everyone that you meet!!!

That is how I feel about the new resources "The Art of Land-Based Learning."  Both volumes 1 and 2 have me feeling inspired and yearning to take more of my creative experiences outdoors!

What is inspiring my new space?

Sunday, January 21, 2018




Like all of you, I am using the new year as a fresh start!  When I was in my kindergarten classroom, it was always a nice time to think about our learning environment.  Specifically, what was working well since September, and what could be improved upon.  I loved re-organizing the furniture, setting out new provocations or materials, and re-imagining the space to match our values and vision.

Dearest blog followers,

There are some big changes on the horizon for TransformEd!

My one room office/studio is transforming into an entire creative space this Spring!  It will be inspired by my work in Kindergarten and the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy.  TransformEd will have an atelier, inquiry research area, and so much more.

Teaching with Twitter and Social Media

Monday, November 27, 2017





I use Twitter and other social media platforms when teaching in the classroom, adult courses, and even for my TransformEd workshop offerings. 

During my graduate studies at York University, I was fortunate to take a course about digital technology with Professor Ron Owston.  

Dream Big this Holiday Season

Monday, November 13, 2017




The holiday season is already upon us, and therefore, gift giving is just around the corner!

Are you in search for the perfect present to give your loved ones?  

I partnered up with Mastermind Toys again this year, and my kids and I brought along my best friend Marlena Ochnik with her toddler A.

I know that I generally blog about early childhood education, the Reggio Emilia philosophy, my workshops, and all things creative, however, sometimes it's kind of nice to let you inside my world as a Mommy...
