B.A., Early Education, University of Vermont
The University of Vermont’s early childhood program is in harmony with the pedagogy of Reggio Emilia; a philosophy of early childhood education that Erin has continued to practice, study, and teach since her graduation. Erin began working at Journeys School in the Pre-K Program in 2006. Throughout her time with Journeys School, Erin has visited and participated in various professional development workshops at Reggio inspired schools across the country and abroad. In 2011, Erin participated in the North American Reggio Emilia study tour in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Since 2012, Erin has annually organized workshops and presented for educators in Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. Erin is focused on interweaving children’s interests in creative and developmentally appropriate ways to facilitate meaningful learning both within the classroom and our larger community. For Erin, there are hundreds of reasons for teaching including joy, laughter, creativity, curiosity, inquiry, research, exploration, learning and wonder.
