Behavior problems in preschool?

Yep, we’ve got that.

What if we interrupt the blame game and...

Stop focusing on anyone or anything as a problem.

 

Focus on empowering teachers, building their confidence, motivation, and enthusiasm for
helping children.

 

Give them effective strategies that they will want to use and remind them that teaching is an art, so ultimately they will need to craft their own way of using them.

 

We need to help practitioners shift their
mindset. Get better grounded in child
development. Be ever hopeful.

My carefully curated team of speakers inspire and delight with their stories and facts interwoven with strategies, strategies, strategies. There are so many gems and takeaways that we can’t help but start to think differently...and to think about how to share that with our colleagues or supervisees or a child’s parent.
