I think giving kids the tools to engage thoughtfully and critically with their lives is important for their personal development and the development of society. I think there is not enough emphasis or importance placed on thinking critically and clearly in today’s world and I would like to see that change with a new generation.
I am a student at Capilano University in the Global Stewardship program. I’m excited to combine my previous experience working at children’s summer camps with my newfound interest in philosophy for kids.I love working with kids and I am excited for the opportunity to teach philosophy to them. I think it will be an interesting and valuable endeavour and will help develop my own understanding for philosophical concepts and how to connect that with childhood development and learning.
