THIS SUMMIT HAS ONE OBJECTIVE.

TO BRIDGE THE TWO COMMUNITIES – PARENTS & TEACHERS
THAT HAS THE MOST IMPACT ON YOUR CHILD, ESPECIALLY IN THE
FOUNDATIONAL YEARS. THE POST-COVID CLASSROOM WILL REQUIRE
SEAMLESS COOPERATION, COMMUNICATION, AND UPSKILLING ON
BOTH SIDES TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE CRUCIAL FORMATIVE YEARS!

SO, WE HAVE BROUGHT TOGETHER EXPERT VOICES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
WE WILL LEARN ABOUT A WHOLE GAMUT OF THINGS FOR PARENTS AND TEACHERS-FROM
UNDERSTANDING POLICY ON EARLY EDUCATION TO UNDERSTANDING THE WONDER OF BABY BRAINS. THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HELPED THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THROUGH THEIR INCESSANT RESEARCH, TEACHING, AND ENGAGEMENT. I AM DEEPLY HONORED TO HAVE THEM
ON THIS PANEL, AND EXCITED AND HUMBLED TO SHARE THEM ALL WITH YOU!

Testimonials


Lisa Pieper

I cannot thank you enough for supplying these talks. I am a special education teacher, PreK-6th grade, in Montana, USA. I am so grateful to have instruction and insight from so many experts available to me. Thank you also for providing the links for follow-up questions and diving deeper into their areas of expertise. This summit will make a difference in the way I approach
assessment, instruction, and intervention in my classroom, as well as how I collaborate with my general education colleagues and parents. All that and I am only halfway through day 1!
