2016 Featured Presenter
Ann Pelo is a teacher educator, program consultant, and author whose primary work focuses on reflective pedagogical practice, social justice and ecological teaching and learning, and the art of mentoring. She worked as a teacher and teacher mentor for sixteen years at a full-day, not-for-profit childcare center in Seattle, Washington. Currently, Ann works with early childhood educators and administrators in North America, Australia, and New Zealand, thinking with them about inquiry-based teaching and learning, pedagogical leadership, and the necessary place of ecological identity in children’s—and adults’— lives. Her work is anchored by a commitment to the right of educators to be intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually engaged by their work.
