About Me

I am a mother of two daughters living in North Carolina. This blog is a culmination of several years of soul-searching. In 2007 I went back to school to study education; while I was there I discovered philosophy. Although I never got my degree in education, my study of philosophy has changed my life and I continue to study philosophical topics all of the time.

My main interest, however, is still education. I never got my degree in elementary education, which is what I went back to school for. However, I am currently working and studying in the field of early childhood education with the hope of someday opening my own early childhood education facility. I spend a lot of time on this blog talking about ECE topics, as well as child development topics. I have enjoyed seeing how my research has changed my views over time. I hope that you will, too, and will not hold my inconsistencies against me, since I am constantly learning new things about this field.

Comments are very much appreciated, whether you agree with my views or not. I always appreciate someone who is willing to take the time to question or remark on views contrary to their own.

  1. So what did you end up doing with your three year olds for Thanksgiving back in 2010. I would love to hear what they were interested in and how you discovered what they wanted to investigate. Thanks.

    • If I remember correctly, I tried to teach them a little bit about the Native Americans through their interest in animals. I figured out what their favorite animals were, and then we created Native American names for ourselves. We drew the animals and applied the drawings to a totem pole made out of a huge stack of cardboard boxes, which we then painted. We explored with corn of different types, and opened up a pumpkin to explore with the seeds in different ways, including roasting them and tasting them. We also made pumpkin bread.

      We started another project around that time with “Stone Soup”. We talked about how to grow vegetables, and we opened up different vegetables to compare the seeds. We planted seeds and made our own stone soup with vegetables that the children brought in and helped prepare.

      It was a very busy holiday!
