39 weeks: Pregnancy confessions and cravings

Friday, August 11, 2017




Is it already 39 weeks?  In some ways this pregnancy has gone by very quickly, and in other ways it has lasted longer than ever!  Perhaps it's because I cannot wait to meet this little lady and experience all the ways that she will change our family.  On the other hand I am not in a rush to deliver, as I feel that all good things come to those who wait. She will make her debut when she's ready!  

Co-constructing a learning environment

Thursday, August 10, 2017

Happy August 1st!


Today I am excited to make a big blog announcement!

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Wednesday, June 7, 2017





As you all know I have been instructing the Kindergarten course to teachers and early childhood educators at York University...

April showers bring May flowers!

Wednesday, May 31, 2017




Though the end of May is here, it won't be the last time that I have flowers on my mind!  If I could afford it, I would have fresh flowers surrounding my children's programs, educator workshops, and even within my own home at all times!  Does anyone else feel this happy in the presence of a beautiful bouquet?
