Hi, I’m Tanya.

My dream is to see every child on the planet receive free high quality education. I want to empower children and adults so that they understand accelerated learning and how to bring out the best in students.

Children represent the future, they are amazing teachers and incredibly inspiring.

Education is very important, if we get it right we can resolve all the issues facing humanity.

I love the idea of children learning about how to grow food, how energy works and how to teach each other.

Pay it Forward is a big part of my life, I write blog posts for www.pifexperience.org about paying it forward with education.

Education scientist Mitra has been experimenting with technology in places around the world without teachers, giving groups of children the means to learn. His work shows that Education is a self-organising system where learning is the emergent phenomenon. Fascinating and thought provoking.

From wonderful UK based Nonviolent Communication (NVC) organisation Seed of Peace, this article goes into useful detail about communicating with children in a way that enables the adult to connect with the child compassionately and with empathy and authenticity through times of trouble, conflict or misunderstanding.

This is a rich and fruitful transforming practice for schools and teachers to introduce into classrooms, staff rooms and playgrounds.

Seed of Peace offers a good range of training in NVC.
