"In a very real way we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels" Daniel Goleman.
In this workshop we will be exploring what it means to be emotionally literate, discovering why teachers need emotional literacy and how they can grow their own personal and social competency capacity.
We will be focusing inwards as we unpack tools for self-awareness and self-management as well as examining how we can use emotional literacy to unlock tools for inspirational leadership and building team cultures.
For most of my life I have been surrounded by little people, whether it has been during my 19+ years of working as an early childhood teacher and centre director or as a parent of my own 3 children.
As a teacher and a parent, I advocate for the RIE way of being and a massive believer in empowering children to learn through free play. Respectful relationships and heart led leadership are at the soul of who I am. I am a proponent of kindness and a seeker of joy.
My passion has always been fostering the lifelong love for learning in children. I work with teachers to empower them to be heart-led early childhood professionals. I work with centre owners, centre leaders, teachers and teams. I am also a provider of SELO for the Ministry of Education in New Zealand
My mission is to empower you by giving you the tools to help you to co-create magic in your life, your team's lives and the lives of the children and families in your place - because people matter.
