We are Ali & Tami, two bubbly and enthusiastic teachers who share the love for creating and enjoying learning experiences with children. That is how we met and this blog was born.
Enjoy the journey with us!
The idea of this blog is to create a space to share what we are learning from our teaching experiences with kids along the way. What we strongly believe in is learning by doing, reflecting and developing ourselves constantly to give children the best teachers we can be.
“When educators engage in continuous learning and questioning, exploring new ideas and adjusting practices, they achieve the best outcomes for children, families and themselves”
We want to help children raising awarneness of diversity, thanks to getting in contact with new languages and cultures, giving them an opportunity to become open-minded citizens of the world.
Who we are
We are Tami & Ali, two curious explorers who love traveling, meeting new people and cultures and learning from each new experience of life. We met each other in Madrid and very soon we discovered a common and genuine interest in colors, patterns, smells, textures, paper, music, boxes and how to create a puppet by dressing up a stick with feathers, buttons and recycled wrapping paper. Our ideas have been growing and growing and Christmas was approaching so we decided to start off a project together. And this is how our first Xmas Happy Camp arrived (the first of many yet to come!). Realizing how much we can learn from sharing our experiences, we created this space for us, to keep inspiring each other, and for everyone who feels to connect with this Learning Community. We invite YOU to participate actively, sharing ideas, experiences, posts, writing feedbacks and reflections, commenting on this blog or by email at:
Looking forward to forge new ideas with you!
