Hi Everyone!


My name is Allison Tiffany-Goldstein, and I'm new to your discussion
list. I discovered Sudbury while researching alternative education on
the Internet. I have a six month old baby girl, and I would like to
know how I can apply the Sudbury model to early childhood education.
Can it be used in educating your infant?


My background is as follows.

* Born and raised in New Jersey.
* Mother was a public school teacher.
* Attended public schools as a child. Graduated from high school
in 1983.
* B.S. in Secondary Education from public university.
* J.D. from private college.
* Enjoyed school and learning until 7th grade. Disliked school
and learning from 7th grade until senior year in college. Fell in love
with school and learning my senior year in college. Loved "learning" in
law school but strongly disliked the "boot camp" atmosphere of the law
school "system."
* I'm a stay home mom and live in Phoenix.


I realized late in life that learning IS fun! There's just a lot of
teachers and school systems that make it awful. I want my daughter to
have a positive experience. Any advice?


Thank you in advance.
