Organization: Ijumaa Jordan Consulting
Ijumaa’s transformative consulting and teaching focus on anti-racism in early childhood, play and equity, reflective and culturally responsive teaching and pedagogical leadership practices. Through speaking engagements, workshops and individual mentoring she supports educators to develop play-based, anti-bias, emergent curriculum.
Ijumaa brings both theory and practice to her work. Her undergraduate and Masters degrees in Human Development focused on early childhood and adult education respectively and give Ijumaa a unique understanding of both how children and adults learn best. With over twenty-five years of practice as a teacher, leader and mentor she discerns from among a variety of tools and approaches to find the best fit for learners and educators. Many educators stay in touch by joining her growing online group “Play and Equity”.
