Hi, I’m Christina! Nice to meet you 🙂 I have been a kindergarten teacher for a few years now, working with 4 year olds. I live in Italy and work in a school where English is the main language being spoken - the kids learning every day life English while playing, following the routine, singing, doing activities etc... I have to say, this past year of pandemic and restrictions made me evolve a lot, as a person but also as a teacher. I made a big change in my life, deciding to dedicate myself more to trying to save our dear planet - reducing waste, walking and cycling more, reducing light and water consumption etc... But I didn't want to go through with this change and then do something different at school. I realized that being a teacher gave me the perfect opportunity to teach good values to future generations. Because if we teach these future adults to reduce, reuse and recycle, and to understand and connect with nature - well, we might just save the planet. So little by little, I've introduced my new way of life to my cheeky monkeys. And as for next year, I have proposed to the director a new program all about the environment and nature! I'm hoping to be able to do it - I want natural materials, I want to spend as much time outside as possible, I want to garden, I want to cook. And I'm hoping that the whole school will follow me into this new adventure. Fingers crossed! 🤞
But for now, I would like to share with you some activities that I’m doing this year. Maybe I can inspire some of you, and maybe you guys can inspire me!
I hope you will enjoy this blog. I can’t wait to go on this journey with all of you.
