1. Leadership for the Early Childhood Educator

Many of us come to a leadership role without having any formal training. Come join us to explore how we can use our skills to be great leaders. Whether you are supervising interns or assistant teachers, leading a group of children or have goals to become a Lead Teacher, Director or an early childhood advocate state-wide, we will discover what leadership means. We'll talk about how to communicate with peers who you now need to supervise and relationships with parents in your new leadership role. We will use self-reflection as a tool to investigate what skills we need, what we already have and how to fine tune these into leadership skills.

Presented by: Keira Durrett

Credits: .5 CEU, 5 EEC training hours

2. STEM is Child’s Play: Incorporating STEM Concepts in Your Program

Children are natural scientists, mathematicians and engineers. Together we will do activities that explore the concepts behind making things fizz, building bridges that won't fall down, and making exciting designs in art. Your questions about the scientific method, chemistry, physics, geometry, and the engineering design process will be answered. You will practice guiding learning through play by asking science questions, infusing STEM vocabulary into conversations with the children, into making dances, telling stories, and making art.
