Ten years ago, I was weighing two options: stay in Early Childhood Education, or make a switch. I stayed, but have also seen my work shift and change over the past decade.

That year I took a job in Belgium that would cement my passions for Early Childhood Education, working with passionate teachers and beginning to use a blog to work through my ideas. I wanted to make sense of the ideas that were coming my way, the things I would read and see and think. I put words and images out into the universe, and it helped me shift my thinking about my job.

Without Bakers and Astronauts, I would not be where I am today. But, projects change. Saying goodbye is bittersweet, but I’m definitely not disappearing.

All Bakers and Astronauts posts from 2015 - 2018 are on the archive page as PDFs, and posts from 2008 - 2015 are on the original blog site. If there is specific content you are looking for and cannot find, please email me.

I am currently building alliepasquier.com, where you can find information about past, present, and future projects.

I’m on twitter.

You can send me a note about anything: allie@play-lab.org. I hope that we’ll meet one day and talk about early childhood.
