FAMILY AND EDUCATOR WORKSHOPS
It takes a village to raise a child, but sometimes that village is difficult to find. Through Adventures in Learning, I strive to create a community that supports every stage of learning. From the tiniest farm friends to adults.
Workshops and parenting groups are provided to help adults educate and parent children of all ages. Parenting groups are organized by topics relevant to raising children today, while educator workshops are designed to support child development in the classroom.
I have a Master in Science in Early Childhood Education degree with a specialization in Special Education. With over 30 years of teaching experience, I am a veteran educator who enjoys sharing my knowledge of early childhood education with other passionate educators.
