Why Our Teachers want to Attend NAEYC's Conference this Month in Orlando
"NAEYC is so inspiring! It's like a giant idea box! I can't wait to learn new effective teaching methods that will help me in the classroom, and all the new ideas are so refreshing. This is my first national conference, and I've been looking forward to it all year!" -- Ms. Ashley
"I look forward to attending NAEYC's conference in November so I can grow both professionally and personally, enhancing my knowledge and understanding of child growth and development. Speakers, presentations, and the exchange of ideas with fellow teachers will be such a valuable learning experience!" -- Ms. Niki
"When I attend conferences, it's an opportunity for me to learn as a teacher so I can create better learning opportunities for the children. NAEYC is so inspiring! We go to the state conference every year, but the national conference is just amazing! I went five years ago and I have been anxious to go back since!" -- Ms. Jessica
"My class loves to sing ... and at the conference I will get to attend sessions with all their favorite musicians ... Jack Hartmann, Gregg & Steve ... can't wait to learn new songs to sing with my class!" -- Ms. Debbie
"Five years ago, the NAEYC conference was in Orlando and several teachers from our school attended a Conscious Discipline session. What a game-changer! Our school began an amazing journey that changed how we perceived "misbehavior" and made us stronger teachers. I can't wait to go with our staff this year. I know that amazing things happen when so much positive energy is flowing!" -- Ms. Cindy
