About Me

Carolina Saenz-Molina began her studies in Early Childhood Education at Sheridan College. She developed a passion for learning and commitment to the profession right from the beginning. She continued her studies at York University, where she completed her Bachelor Degree in Psychology. Learning did not stop there for Carolina, she went on to post-graduate work at Ontario’s Institute for Studies in Education at University of Toronto. During her time at OISE her interest in early learning grew even more, followed with the birth of her daughter which to this day is her inspiration for children’s inquiries. Currently, Carolina works passionately to support student learning teaching in Early Childhood Education Programs. She is excited to share her practical and theoretic knowledge and recognizes and celebrates the experience and skills which students bring to their learning. Grounded in the Reggio Emilia Approach Carolina works as a co-teacher, and views her role of the teacher first and foremost to be that of a learner alongside her students. She aims at creating a space in her classroom that fosters curiosity and inquiry. Please use this blog as a source of inspiration for you, students, faculty, or whoever you wish to share it with!!
