George E. Forman, Ph.D.
Our school community sought the guidance of Pam Okenwright to establish a stronger, more visible Reggio practice in our four-year-young school. In the past and always present, Pam makes herself accessible to us as a mentor and inspiration for the Reggio philosophy. Specifically, we required the tangible means to create and share the stories of the children’s learning process. Pam’s teaching style is true to Reggio: she is aware of our personalities, learning styles, our joy, our challenges, and even our fears. Pam is a delightful story-teller, patient and mindful of our attention, understanding and inquiries. She shared four fleeting hours with us and left us with immediate, real intentions and tools to implement both student portfolios and a school blog. Pam is selfless with her wisdom. We are so grateful to have her as our mentor.

This came up on my FB feed today. I thought it was timely after my first week back. Though you were only in my class for a short bit this week, one of my huge take-a-ways from you is the art of listening. You can read it in a textbook, but watching you in action left a huge impression on me that will not only benefit me, but most importantly, my kids! Thank you is not enough for what you have showed me and shared with me.
If you know my work, won’t you please leave a testimonial? Thank you!
