Thanks to a grant we received from MA DESE, we are so grateful to have Jeanine Fitzgerald, author of The Dance of Interaction and a national training program entitled Education with Insight, providing professional development and coaching to our teachers and educational assistants this school year. The is an amazing speaker who is motivating and inspiring our staff with her knowledge and approach to child development, behavior management and the importance of strong relationship building. Inspired by her presentations, our entire staff is also reading her book and many will be participating in a book group on it as well. We want you as parents and caregivers to have an opportunity meet with her, to learn from her and to be inspired and empowered as we have been!
On March 2nd the ECDC PCC is sponsoring a parent workshop with Ms. Fitzgerald where she will talk to you about many of the same topics we have been addressing as a staff: the importance of interactions, individual child development and readiness, and behavior management . I urge you to consider joining us!
Please email Laura Flanagan to RSVP so that I can be sure to have enough handouts and seating available for all who want to attend!
