Dr. Annabella Cant and Violet Jessen
Annabella is a professor in Early Childhood Education at Capilano University and a sessional instructor at SFU. Annabella received the 2019 Teaching Excellence Award from Capilano University, speaks at ECCE conferences, sits on the Academic Council of the Centre for Imagination in Research, Culture and Education and is the initiator and editor-in-chief of the online journal: Childhoods and Pedagogies. She has been practicing ECCE since 1994 in both Canada and Europe. Her newest publication, Unswaddling Pedagogy (2017), is a book for educators and parents. Her new pedagogical lens—the unswaddling pedagogy—is inspired and fueled by the stories she has lived. Her passions are her family + puppy, running, and creating an inclusive world. Violet Jessen is a faculty and Practicum Convenor of the Capilano University Early Childhood Care and Education Program. She is the current Board Chair of the Early Childhood Educators of BC and has been an early childhood educator for almost 25 years. Violet is also one of the founding members of the North Shore Early Childhood Conference: To Learn, To Wonder – a venue that provides professional development for the local ECE community and beyond. She enjoys music and working with wool and brings those passions to the curriculum courses in the program. Teaching online for the past year during the pandemic has been challenging but Violet is absolutely inspired by the students and educators who have persevered and have shown such dedication to their chosen profession.
