I’ve never seen a renowned education expert do a little dance and shout ‘whoo!’ on stage, imitating a wild child, but Natacha Biem‘s experience with kids as an early development educator totally sold it. Her talk last week at Creative Mornings wasn’t just funny but pointed with optimism towards a better way to motivate and educate our children to become the problem solvers of tomorrow.
It was also the first talk to be given in the new home of this speaker series, the Dodson House Conference Centre. Standing outside in one of the dodgy parts of Hastings Street, you would never guess at such a large space with polished concrete floors and exposed wood in the walls. I hope Creative Mornings is able to continue supporting this venue and culture in the Downtown Eastside well into the future.
