Joanne Marie Babalis
Joanne is a Full-Day Early Learning Kindergarten teacher for the York Region District School Board who is on a journey through inquiry-based teaching and early learning.
on Inquiry & Classroom Environments
She was kind enough to invite us into her classroom and share her thoughts on some important topics in education, as well as her own development as an educator who is always excited to learn from the students around her.
"Inquiry-based learning plays an integral role to our Full Day Kindergarten Program – we follow the students interests and their wonders. Having them involved in this way has changed everything that we do. We are partners in learning and they have taught us way more than we could have imagined. The engagement is unbelievable – the magic never fails! It may not even be the inquiry in particular, but the wonders that come out of them."
Joanne's popular blog, Transforming our Learning Environment into a Space of Possibilities, was created with the intention of spreading important messages about Early Learning to a greater number of educators and students.
