I understand that life is busy, whether we wash the mountain of the endless pit of clothes (seriously!), cooking, cleaning, appointments and work and that is not even including all the stuff we do for the kids! With kids, sometimes just making sure they have a healthy meal & getting them dressed in clean clothes […]
As a mother, I always want to protect my babies from anything that is painful, hurtful or unkind. But I’ve learnt that the best I can do is to be open with them, feel all emotions with them (the good and bad) and provide a safe space for understanding and accepting dialogue. Racism is one […]
How to throw a ballerina party during hard times and how they can be better! Evie turns 1!I had always dreamed of doing my little girl’s first birthday party. All the tulle and pretty little details. And now she is one! I can’t believe it, where has the time gone? I had decided to do […]

I get the same question now as I did when I was teaching and when I was consulting. “Jo, what educational apps should I use?”or others would engage in a totally different dialogue, “how can they learn with technology at all?” When I was teaching, I wanted to change this dialogue as I do now […]
Innovation. Without it, we simply just don’t move forward. Whilst it comes naturally to some, it is imperative to help children to develop a growth mindset, apposed to a fixed one. This will help them with problem-solving, with relationships, with resilience and coping with all the challenges that life will throw at them. It will […]
When I was teaching I loved technology as a form of engagement and to assess and enhance learning. All my students had their own digital portfolios and websites. I created all programs incorporating technology effectively. I then created training for educators and demonstrated how to implement it into the classroom. Kids are the digital native, […]
