Juggling all the studio responsibilities and my consulting with keeping these two little people close-by has been really hard for me 😳! Sometimes Instagram makes everything look so simple or easy. Each day I have new challenges like every other working Mama. But we all make choices and this is our path! Since I have struggled to find a school that I like with part-time care for my son (and now daughter), I hope that my school board will extend my maternity leave for another year. Fingers crossed !!! 🤞 🤞 This way I can be home with my kids until they are a bit older, and perhaps I feel more confident to let go. Truth is, I am very picky about where I will send them. And so far, I haven’t found something close-by that is Reggio Emilia inspired!  For all that money, it’s a really big and important decision!!! Any other Mama’s feel this way? 😢 📸: @clarkylaura

Dear future educators/artists, Want to volunteer at the TransformEd Creative Studio? We are looking for creative high school students who need to complete their hours, ECE students, College/University students with a focus in fine arts, or Teacher’s College students.  I had the most wonderful student help us on Monday and realized how important it is to share this beautiful space with others ! When I taught in the classroom we always had three people with us throughout our days/week supporting learning, documentation, setup and cleanup. If you know someone, or think that this might interest you, can you please please DM me ??? I promise to write a reference letter and teach you about the Reggio Emilia approach !! Ps. These volunteer positions may eventually grow into our first paid staff !! Police checks are required for the safety of all participating. Thanks for sharing this information with your network ! 📸: @clarkylaura
