GETTING LIGHT UP CRAZY: THE POWER OF CONNECTIONS WITH KIDS & FAMILIES

This day is all about the power we hold as educators and caregivers. It’s all in the “light up” of the relationships we have with the kids and families we work with, teach and care for. We will talk about the science behind attachment, why it matters always and how best to develop these relationships with the kids, their caregivers and our colleagues. Most importantly, we will talk about how we practice this understanding that “you first” isn’t always possible, but that “you too” is critical to survive in the holy work of educating kids. If you are new to teaching, child care or want to be better than you’ve ever been in this field, this is a perfect day for you.

GETTING RE-LIT: REMEMBERING YOUR “WHY“ AS YOU STEP BACK INTO THE CLASS ROOM

This day is for any professionals who have attended Jody’s talks before and are looking for a “recharge” and some (friggen) gentle reminders about just how powerful you are. We will talk about what the kids, families and staff you work with need the most. We will review the most relevant attachment research, revisit some of the “basics” of emotional regulation and introduce the most recent research. We will make a plan about how this is going to be you best year yet. Without a doubt, “to be better than you’ve ever been, you have to do things like you’ve never done them before”.
