Welcome to my website.
An experienced school consultant, mother, and grandmother, I find myself unable to function in “business as usual.”
Until we have new national leadership, this website is devoted to reflect my life’s work, helping to create a safe and loving environment for children, in a new way.
Our current national leadership contradicts many of the tenets of which educators view as qualities worth cultivating in children: integrity, thoughtfulness, mindfulness, wisdom, curiosity, social-emotional maturity, generosity, compassion, helpfulness, spirituality, kindness, embracing differences, respect for humans and other living beings, care of our planet—just for starters.
This is not about politics; it is a life raft out of a storm. I don’t know why moths are drawn to a flame of destruction, but that is what many are seeking. I hope to bring them into the safe space of human compassion. I know there are people who want things to change.
In addition to sharing information about raising healthy and compassionate children, I am a resource for learning. Please feel free to contact me.
If you have a story to share about your experience in today’s horrifying political nightmare that can shed some insight into the phenomenon of fear, or about a heroic act that contributes to a more life-giving reality, please send me your words to post.
I know we can create the safe, loving, and compassionate world we all deserve if we each dig in and do “that thing” that is ours to do. I look forward to hearing from you.
Wendy Zacuto, Educational Consultant, Mother, and Grandmother.
