Coping Through COVID With Your Calling and Curriculum in Mind (1.5 hrs PD)
Sat., March 27, 2021 at 1pm
Oftentimes we spend our time pouring into others with few opportunities to pour into ourselves. We spend a great bit of time learning new strategies for our classrooms, but little time working on ourselves! Participants will learn about approaches to coping through COVID with their calling (teaching) and curriculum in mind! Participants will also learn approaches they can take to cope with stress, identifying their needs, communicate their needs, and how they teach children how to do the same.Dr. Anthony Broughton

Moving Past Paper – Technology in Childcare (2.0 hrs PA)
Sat., May 8, 2021 at 9am
Directors are swamped in their offices with paperwork, enrollment, billing and more. This makes it very hard for them to spend the time they need or would like to in the classrooms coaching their teachers. By introducing them to new technology options, we hope to help them free up some time for the things they WANT to do!Shelly Summer & Michael Taylor
