MANY KINDS OF SMART - Keynote
Think you are good at your job because you love children? What about the ones that challenge you? This session is a far cry from simply listing various personality characteristics, needs and preferences. By providing easy to implement, yet possibly challenging, “comfort zone stretchers,” Lisa challenges teachers to make sure they are reaching all the children in the classroom.
Breakout Session: OH, THOSE LITTLE ONES
The focus is on making sure the adults working with our wee-ones realize that nothing and we mean nothing! is more important than creating and nurturing those strong bonds of attachment.
Saturday, Session 2 - Memorial Student Center, Great Hall
