Christie Burnett


Christie Burnett is the teacher, author, and blogger behind the playful online space known as Childhood 101. With experience teaching across a wide range of classroom settings, Christie advocates for play and creativity and its importance to the process of learning across all content areas, and for children of all ages. Her passion led her to start the award-winning blog Childhood 101, shortly after the birth of her first daughter.

Since starting Childhood 101, Christie’s articles have appeared across a range of publications both in print and online, and in 2013 her first book, Time to Create: Hands-On Explorations in Process Art for Young Children, was published.

Typically Christie spends her days juggling the demands of everyday family life with time tapping away at her keyboard, at least when she hasn’t just dropped it all to join her daughters in whatever their latest game or project might be!
