Guest post: Be Inspired by Tiny Humans

April 24, 2017

I’d like to thank Roberta for having me as a guest.  It’s great to be here with a new audience!

Who am I?

My name is Cynthia Mackey but most people call me Cindy and I’ve lived in Canada for my entire life.  Because it is such a big country, there are many parts of my own country that I have never visited. I’m from the west coast where the weather is very mild. Though you may think of Canada as a cold, snowy place, the winters here have very few days with snow, sometimes we do not see snow for 3-4 years in a row.

I am a mother, a sister, a daughter, a teacher, a blogger and a writer. I love living near where the forest meets the mountains and the seashore.  I love the nature in my corner of the world.  It is a beautiful place to photograph.

What is my blog all about?

I write a blog called simply.cindy that features my passion for literacy, early learning, and young children.  The tiny humans I teach are my inspiration.  So if you are a parent, a teacher, a grandparent or a lover of picture books you may be interested in reading my blog.  Quite often, I find my posts end up relating to all people, not just children.  My goal is to offer something of value that may help someone else.

Why do I blog?

I started blogging about 2 years ago. For me it was a wonderful discovery of how regular writing can be incredibly therapeutic.  But there were many more reasons for me to blog. I found it was helpful in making me a more reflective educator of young children.  It gave me a chance to look back at the learning experiences each day and see how they could be further supported or enhanced.  It gave me a chance to share my years of experience as a teacher with others who might be looking for ideas.  It gave me a chance to share with parents some moments from their children’s day.  And it helped me work on my goal: to eventually self-publish my first picture book.  And finally, it gave me a voice in my little corner of the internet.

What do I value?

My blog features the things I value the most: learning through play, nature, reading, literacy, music, character building, kindness, friendship, co-operation, patience, moderation, self-confidence, perseverance, positivity and determination.  I could go on, but you get the idea.

Thank you!

If you’ve got this far, thank you very much for reading my post.  I have learned it is all about the reader and my hope is to offer something helpful or inspirational for people out there.  So thank you, Roberta!  Have a lovely day, everyone.
