Avery warm welcome Shannon

Hope you find this space useful and will help keeping it alive and vibrant.
Please enjoy this community and share your stories to keep this space full of inspiration.

These days I am very curious about early learning as well - as I will be sending my oldest child to school in a year or so and can really see how public schools are challenged and not thinking about the education of a human being, but rather a  member of society that needs to serve a system that is rapidly becoming obsolete.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Warm regards
On behalf of the online hosting team

Rowan Simonsen
