Yona will share the journey that she took with her Nursery class when exploring the story telling methods of Vivian Gussin Paley. She will share research, show how to implement and promote story telling with children and, most importantly, she will share the story of the children themselves and how Vivian Gussin Paley’s way of storytelling allows children to be masters of their own learning.
Yona has been working with young children for 30 years, both in the UK and Australia. She has been a nursery and reception teacher for the past 12 years and has always believed that fostering imagination will help children find ways to face the challenges in their lives. She has always looked for ways to help children take control of their own learning.
