Creation Culmination

October 20, 2021 | Sossi Essajanian

Each day, the Trees Class children heard a different day of the Creation story in worship.

There are many ways the children have been responding to the story.

The art language of collage also allowed children to reflect on the daily story. Each child contributed their work to a class collage that tells the Creation story.

And God said,

Let there be light…

Let there be Sky, Let there be Seas…

Let there be Land, Let it be Green…

Let there be Sun, and Moon, and Stars…

Let there be Birds, Let there be Fish…

Let there be Animals, Let there be People…

Then God looked, at all the things that God had made. 

God took a rest, and all was blessed.

Sossi Essajanian

Teacher, Sky Class

Sossi Essajanian is excited to continue her teaching and learning journey at the Mustard Seed School. She began teaching at the United Nations International School where she worked with children and colleagues from around the world. This inspired her to take a primary teaching position abroad in Nicosia, Cyprus, where she lived and worked for two years.

Ms. Essajanian has a passion for supporting children’s social/emotional skills and learning through a loving and caring classroom community. These are built on creating shared understandings and opportunities for children to identify and express their feelings and of those around them. She believes in creating experiences through pair and group work where learning blossoms through social experiences.

Ms. Essajanian also enjoys reading and talking about books and continues to pursue her second passion: editing. She’s worked in various editorial capacities in newspapers, magazines, and books. She was recently excited to serve as the development editor of a children’s book about engineering and is looking forward to leading some tinkering investigations of her own with her students!

In her free time Ms. Essajanian runs, swims laps, and likes to take long walks to explore the world around her.
