The Knowing Garden is proud to announce that we will open our third classroom, for students ages 9 to 11, this Fall. Our founding students, along with some new colleagues, are set to break ice and sail on toward extending their academic endeavors and community involvement. Magdalena Garcia, will walk along side our students, to build the foundation. You already know Lena because she has been leading the development of TKG’s collaborative and interactive learning environment since 2011. She is a graduate of UCLA’s Graduate School of Education & Information Studies, where her deeply rooted commitment to social justice was strengthened.
Michelle Goldbach-Johnson, our founding teacher, continues her amazing work with helping students develop a love a learning with emphasis on social-emotional growth in the 5 to 7 Classroom. Dawn Smith is our dedicated co-teacher in the 5 to 7 Class and she continues her commitment to meeting our youngest sprouts where they are.
We are incredibly lucky to be adding Yvette Fenton, an experienced TKG teacher, as our Lead Teacher in the 7 to 9 Class. Her passion for primary education with her extensive experience in Reggio-Emilia education is a wonderful match to Elle Schwartz’s art curriculum. Elle, co-teacher in our 7 to 9 Class, is a key contributor to the TKG arts program and we are thrilled to continue our collaboration.
Things are growing and changing at The Knowing Garden! Thank you for your continued support. Enrollment is currently open to students ages 5 through 9 – Applications are available, here. TKG plans to open an 11-13 Class in 2017.
