A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF
I often have been asked over the years, by both parents and colleagues, "Why do children respond to you the way they do? How are they so receptive to your words? Why is it that in your presence, your classroom is so calm?"
As owner and operator of Christopher Robin's and the mother of twin teenage daughters, I reflected deeply trying to come up with definite answers to these questions. Of course my Early Childhood Certification and 20 years of experience does give significance to my practice; however, when my children were small I adopted a Waldorf approach to parenting, and attended a conference where Kim John Payne was guest speaker. After listening to his thoughts on brain development in young children, I was completely in awe of his ideas, and read his book Simplicity Parenting. It was after this experience, and with the adaptation of the combination of Waldorf Parenting techniques and Simplicity Parenting teachings came a profound change, not only in my classroom, but in my family life as well.
I so strongly felt that Kim's approach was such a powerful combination of creating a peaceful environment, while at the same time guiding children in ways that is not only effective, but profoundly pleasant. In 2022, I began my training as a Simplicity Parent Group Leader, and in 2023, I completed both the Family Life and Guidance & Discipline Group Leader Trainings, in hopes that I can help bring parents and caregivers peace, calm and the security of strong values to their families and classrooms.
