“A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions.” This quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson has come to mind many times during the past few months.
Our world has been turned upside down and teaching young children has certainly not been the “normal.” However, so many of you have remained faithful to the calling of teaching young children. You have learned new technology skills, planned on a moment’s notice, and looked at teaching through a different lens.
The 2020 TBCWEA Summer State Conference will be different than what we anticipated, but it is going to be a fun and exciting learning experience. Come journey with us as we refocus on looking at life and learning through the eyes of young children! Never before has it been so critical to be attuned to the needs of young children and their families. And never before has it been so important to remember 1 Corinthians 13:11: “When I was child, I talked like a child; I thought like a child; I reasoned like a child.”
Hear from experts like David Thomas, L.M.S.W. on the emotional well-being of children (www.raisingboysandgirls.com) and Amy Carlson, MS, RD on the impact of good nutrition on kids and adults. You’ll also hear from conference favorites like Dr. Shelly Melia, Allison Jessee, Jenice Dames, Lauren Blaschke and many more!
