Thinking With a Social Justice in ECE
September 28, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$5.00
This online workshop is meant to support educators in thinking with a social justice perspective by thinking about what social justice means to them. Through thinking with pedagogical questions, participants will engage in discussions to explore how to make visible injustices, advocate and begin to stand in solidarity with children and families who may need and want support.
Ana Valle Rivera is the Founder of Early Years Workshops. By combining experience in the field, academics, the ECEBC Code of Ethics, and the BC Early Learning Framework, Ana supports others to think in multiple perspectives and improve pedagogical, social, emotional, attachment-based, trauma-informed, and intuitive practices.
Note from Ana Valle: To stand in solidarity with my Indigenous brother, sister, and the Indigenous community, I do not facilitate workshops on Indigenous topics on my own. I will continue to co-facilitate with my sister until she feels ready to present the topics on her own. I will continue to work within the Indigenous community and I am working on creating opportunities for BIPOC voices to be heard.
Background & Experience: Raised in a large and lively family in East Vancouver BC, Ana knew her life’s purpose was working with children. She began working in the childcare field in 2007, has a Diploma in ECE, Special Needs and Infant Toddler Education(2010), and a Bachelor in Child and Youth Care with a specialization in Early Years (2021). Ana is a parent, a children’s book author, and the founder of Early Years Workshops & Training. Ana has many aspirations but her current focus is to inspire positive change in the early year’s field through sharing a vision of social justice and social wellness for all.
