Shelly Gargus (4s Teacher) is continually amazed and inspired by the the collaborative process between children and teachers. She has taught for the past five years at Beginnings, a Reggio inspired pre-school in New York City, where she developed a passion for an emergent, thoughtful approach to teaching. On the heels of a visit to Reggio Emilia, Italy where she was immersed in their approach to early childhood education, she is thrilled to be able to continue her practice at Blue School. Shelly is dedicated to life-long learning and has attended many conferences and workshops on topics ranging from occupational therapy to the design of educational documentation. Through her work at Beginnings, she had a mentoring relationship with the University of Vermont's Campus Children's Center over the course of several years, and in 2008 attended the University of British Columbia's Summer Institute for Early Childhood Education and Research. She is currently a student at the City College of New York, with plans to pursue a dual Master's Degree in Special Education and Social Work. She lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn and in her spare time cares for her two senior dogs, writes, reads, plays guitar and rides her bicycle.
