Becoming a teacher is the only thing I can remember myself wanting to be. Having a positive memory of my own teachers or avoiding the mistakes they have made were certainly some of the factors that drove me towards that direction. My experience in teaching made me realize one main thing: what makes our job so special and at the same time so challenging, is the emotional involvement that takes place. Building up a relationship based on trust, care and joy is fundamental in order to support children’s learning and development.

The idea of emJoy was born to bring teachers together, inspire each other and embrace the joy of teaching and learning.
