About Bakers and Astronauts

Bakers and Astronauts was established in 2008 as a reflective blog.  It began as a way for me to reflect on my daily work as a preschool classroom teacher.  It evolved into tool for connection.  Through Bakers and Astronauts, I have learned about my personal teaching practice, including my own theories of teaching and learning.  This was possible because of the people who have come to this space and shared their own experiences.  The practice of sharing the teaching and learning in my classrooms shaped the educator that I am - a continually evolving one.

In the journal, I share about all things early childhood, with a focus on design, theory, practice, and current issues.  Bakers and Astronauts has evolved over the years, encompassing more projects and ideas; I hope that it continues to evolve.


About Allie Bishop Pasquier

I am an early childhood educator, first and foremost.  I have both my B.S. and M.S. in Early Childhood Education, and I have spent 15 years in a variety of educational settings.  I have worked in Head Start, a children's museum, parent cooperative preschools, a large international school, and a little democratic school, to name a few.  My passion for Early Childhood grows every year, and I am currently exploring the world of writing and teacher research.  I am interested helping teachers and educational spaces think about big ideas such as reflection, play, childhood, and culture as they plan and implement high-quality curriculum.
