Getting my Learning On

One of the things I love about working at AUNE is the diversity of perspectives. Sure, we all come from a progressive stance, but within that there’s still a lot of room to move. Working with folks who hold different viewpoints on what’s good for kids (or business or the earth or the mind) is a gift- and it’s one I haven’t opened often enough.

So one of my 2014 resolutions (along with those perennial favorites “lose weight/ be more grateful/ eat more fiber”) is to get to know more about the work my colleagues do. I’m going to start with Torin Finser, Chair of the Education Department and Waldorf Teacher Extraordinaire. I’m going to read some of his books, look at some of his stuff on the web, and share a bit about how I think his work (and the work of Waldorf education in general) overlaps with our work in public education. I’m also going to do some learning about David Sobel‘s work with Nature Based Early Childhood Education and Susan Dreyer Leon‘s Mindfulness for Educators program.

The best teachers are always learning, right? So I’m going to start 2014 by getting my head around  my colleagues.  I hope you’ll join me!
