The Early Years Carousel

By Noa Daniel

Passionate educators connect weekly to address questions, explore perspectives and learn from each other.

Dr Sara Shabahzi currently teaches the Early Years Service Learning Course, among other things, in the Faculty of Education at the University of Windsor. Over the course of 4 semesters, teacher candidates spend time volunteering in an early years space and using their experiences and the theory learned in class to plan and implement an Early Years Carousel for families in their community. Due to Covid 19, their projects shifted from an in-person event to a virtual event, and 4 preservice teachers: Lakeshia, Allie, Hayley and Zak, came to share their experiences.

Tonight’s panelists include:

Dr. Sara Shahbazi @S_Shahbazi23 @EY_uwindsor
Hayley Wright @ms_hwright
Allie Szusz @AllieSzusz
Romany Lakeshia @RomanyLakeshia
Zak Rybansky @ZakaryRybansk
