The theme for the March 8, 2013 was ‘reuse’ featuring speaker Natacha Beim, which was a perfect choice for International Women’s Day.
Natacha spoke about the role creativity played in her career as an early childhood educator, entrepreneur and mother.
A few notable comments (paraphrased) by Natacha: "Be persistent and ask ‘why not?’“ "If every child is creative, what happens when they become adults? School!” “All schools can and must be creative environments.” “If education can be better, make it better. Why wait for governmental bodies to implement change?” “Before dumping knowledge into your kid’s mind, think about how they are going to reuse it in their lives.” “Creativity is a habit that must be cultivated.” “Over prepared kids lead to underprepared adults” “Creativity is mastering a discipline while having the freedom to make it happen in your own way.” “Parents should allow children the time to be creative.” “We need creative thinkers. Facts won’t solve the problems of the world.”
