Log in to Reply lolo on February 9, 2011 at 9:51 pm Marla, I have been reading your blog for a while and never commented; I find every entry inspiring. I want you to have been my teacher, I want you to be my child’s teacher, I want you to come teach at my school.Those students of yours are so lucky. Do all teachers at the school you work at have the same education philosophy as yours? If yes, this must be one amazing school.

I work & collaborate with amazing teachers and assistants who have a shared vision-I am indeed lucky!

What great work habits these children are developing – to try, to take a break, to return, refocus, and strive for more. Beautiful!

I’m hoping to inspire others to explore the Reggio Emilia Approach as well as using Emergent Curriculum in their classrooms!
