Rachel Giannini

I have an extreme enthusiasm for all things early childhood. I believe in the power of play, getting dirty, climbing trees, star gazing, pretending, and the idea that learning is magical. I strive to make better citizens through encouragement, love, and teaching equality. I specialize in creating content which hits all early learning standards yet engaging, memorable, outside of the box, and most of all FUN!

After several years teaching in progressive education, I now find myself transferring these skills at the Chicago Children's Museum. As a program manager and lead educator I make spaces  and create programs which are developmentally appropriate and simulating to our littlest learners. As a photographer I document these experiences and use it to educate others on the wonders of the relationship between learning and play.
