Before the 2019 InterAct Class Summit in Nashville was even over, we were already excitedly planning 2020! But before we get too ahead of ourselves, let's take a quick look back at the incredible presenters, attendees, and staff that made 2019 possible. We had nearly 400 participants from all backgrounds—teachers, caregivers, mentors, coaches, trainers, implementation leaders, administrators, assessors, researchers, and more. However, their common passion for improving classroom interactions and empowering life-changing teachers was evident.
Teachstone is celebrating Week of the Young Child hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). We'll be posting articles, videos, activities, and more all week on Facebook and Twitter.
For Tasty Tuesday, we've found a few healthy recipes for every mealtime, including dessert. These recipes are easy to assemble and make, and your early learners can help out as well. What are your favorite healthy recipes?
I have a confession to make—I'm a social media junkie. I had to go through a 12-step program to cure my Facebook habit. I had a short relapse, but I was able to kick it again. I tried Twitter years ago, but that just wasn't for me. Pinterest is just straight up evil. I've planned two weddings, a total remodel of a home, and a trip to Hawaii.None of these things is ever going to happen, but Pinterest has robbed me of about 400 hours of time that I put into these nonexistent projects.Instagram is one of those things that I can take or leave.
The 2018 InterAct Class Summit was a great success! Participants came from all backgrounds--teachers, caregivers, mentors, coaches, trainers, administrators, and more. The passion, warmth, and desire to learn were clear in every session, meal, conversation, and interaction!
We may be busy at our InterAct Summit this week, but we’re also celebrating the Week of the Young Child hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Each day has a theme and Thursday is Artsy Thursday. Artsy Thursday asks you to think, problem solve, and create.
The 2018 InterAct CLASS Summit is less than a week away! The badges are made, boxes are packed, and swag bags are ready. We’re very excited. Now is also a good time to do a little reflecting. I reached out to LuAnn LaCava, who attended the 2017 InterAct Summit, to learn about her experience and perspective. LuAnn has been involved in early childhood education since 1987. After spending 13 years in a preschool classroom she became a curriculum specialist and is now coaching Head Start and Early Head Start staff.
Our third annual InterAct CLASS Summit is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited. This year, we’re gearing up for our biggest event yet, with more CLASS educators than ever before. But event attendance is certainly not the only thing that is improving. Here are a few exciting new aspects of the Summit for this year:
