Who am I?
My name is Erin Choi. I am from St. Paul, MN. My husband and I live in Hong Kong with our three daughters, ages 6, 4, and 1. I have taught English at a local primary school here for ten years before deciding to take a break to stay home with my youngest this year. Over the summer, I had the amazing experience of taking part in the RIE Foundations course in St. Paul. I wish I could be nearer to all of you, but I am so happy I can stay connected all the way across the world.
How did you find FORM?
The lovely Ms. Carolyn Paetzel introduced me to FORM.
What aspect of the Educaring® Approach resonates with you the most and why?
Free child-led movement and play is the aspect that really speaks to me, probably because of how relieving it is to know that I am not responsible for entertaining and teaching my children how to play (and move).
