Mary Margaret has been involved in the early childhood community for over 35 years, driven by her passion to support the teachers who work with our most valuable asset, our children. She joined Teachstone in 2010 and has been a CLASS convert since the early days before Teachstone was even started! Mary-Margaret loves to play in her rock band and spend time with her family and horse!
In April, Teachstone and Brookes Publishing will release the Infant CLASSTM tool! It’s been a little over a year since I provided a series of pilot trainings to learn about the validity of the measure and how best to train observers. We are now busy compiling that data and putting the final touches on resources to help you learn about the Infant CLASS tool, measure interactions using the Infant CLASS measure, and ultimately, improve these interactions. Expect to see observation trainings, Video Library clips, a Dimensions Guide, and other professional development opportunities related to the Infant CLASS tool.
