"Whether it's English or math, emergent writing or project-based learning, these teachers are expected to deliver. This conference will prepare them to handle the responsibilities that come with their expanding roles," SDE program developer Mia Leonard-Solis says. "That's good news for everyone all around, because as teachers manage their jobs more effectively, they'll have more time to devote to meeting the individual needs of their students." Those who attend will gain direct access to the knowledge, wisdom, and experience of top kindergarten experts in the country. Their classroom experience gives them a clear understanding of the challenges kindergarten teachers face. Featured presenters are Dan St. Romain, a nationally recognized behavior expert, and Kim Adsit, a kindergarten classroom teacher, author, and blogger. Also in the line-up is the popular Deanna Jump, the #1 seller for teacherspayteachers.com. This conference is built around an experiential learning model that includes make-and-take sessions as well as hands-on highly interactive sessions, both offering a wealth of strategies and techniques. Teachers will gain first-hand experience trying out some of the skills they learn, so they'll be ready to hit the ground running back in their classrooms.
