Our regularly-scheduled Spring may be temporarily delayed, but our engagement calendar is blossoming! Over the next month, I’ll be out visiting with practitioners, parents, educators and students, on a variety of topics.
Here are some highlights:
- This Friday, I’ll be visiting a group of dedicated and curious parents at Irma Coulson school in Milton. We’ll be learning about the benefits (and the fun) of introducing philosophy to young thinkers, both inside and outside of the classroom.
- This Saturday will mark our first “meeting of the minds” for advocates of philosophy for children in Ontario (and a kind soul or two from Quebec). We’ll be comparing notes, talking technique, and dreaming of future initiatives.
- It is with great pride that I join the ranks of presenters at this year’s Project Inkwell conference for young writers. This organization does so much to promote literacy and creative pursuits, and I’m delighted to share my experiences as a writer, and and as an educator.
- I had so much fun running STEM workshops for girls with hErVolution last year, and was so excited to receive an invitation to do more! We’ll be offering our “Famous Women in STEM” workshop on Sunday, April 6, in Brampton. For all kinds of information and resources, it’s worth checking out the hErVolution blog as well.
We’re all looking forward to a spring spent making new connections in the educational community!
