"Life begins with love, is maintained with love, and ends with love. Right now, while we’re alive, is the time to practice and express love. So please take care of your love. Love is capable of reaching so many people." —Tsoknyi Rinpoche
Stacy Pulice, Ph.D.
Stacy Pulice is a television industry veteran, therapist, writer, wife and mother. Her educational philosophy, encapsulated by her dissertation “The Colonized Child,” is centered on love, healing and emotional safety in the classroom. The underlying problem is an increasing alienation, disconnection and unhappiness for students and teachers in school. This matters because in order to solve such a problem, interested and invested parties must discuss the root causes of negative educational experiences. Stacy woke up to the idea of “colonized education” and began unraveling her own history with it at the same time her son was first exposed to the same phenomenon. This shared experience galvanized her desire to create a place where educators, students and parents could connect and express themselves.
Stacy intends to speak as an educational consultant and publish her first book based on her dissertation as well as these conversations with a like-minded community. Her goal is to foster an understanding that love matters in education, because children make more meaningful connections with others in a positive environment. She offers simple, free ideas and practices that can enhance any classroom, changing the quality of the school experience for everyone in an authentic way.
