A quick note to those in the middle of this pandemic. First – breathe, and second – take care of yourself! You can only help others when you have done the required self-care (as minimal as it may be at this challenging time).

This site is for children as learners, their families and their teachers. I am a District Teacher Consultant who supports educators who in turn work with many kinds of learners. Together, we work toward meeting the needs of all learners – Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Currently, my focus is working with educators to help children learn about their Social and Emotional well-being.
I believe that developing an understanding of our social-emotional selves is fundamental to inclusion. Inclusion and community grow together. Let’s build more inclusive communities!
To this end, I have been exploring:
- the Zones of Regulation® framework and teaching tools by Leah Kuypers
- the Self-Regulation Foundations course taught by Dr. Stuart Shanker and Dr. Susan Hopkins
- the Mindful Educators course with mindfulschools.org
- the SCERTS Model for Social Communication, Emotional Regulation and Transactional Supports© by Dr. Prizant, Dr. Wetherby, Ms. Rubin, and Ms. Laurent.
