Dr. Jean will host her first “summer camp” for teachers near Atlanta on June 21 and 22, 2007. It will be two full days of literacy activities, math activities, plus practical classroom management tips and tricks! Every day will start with a “sing along,” and each day will end with a make and take so you’ll have lots of new materials for your classroom when school starts. It will be a special time to network, refresh your ideas, celebrate teaching, and have FUN!
“I’ve always thought it would be exciting to have a summer camp for early childhood teachers in a relaxed atmosphere where we could learn, sing, talk, share, and make materials for our classroom. I finally decided to JUST DO IT! I promise you that I’m going to do my BEST to make it two of the most meaningful days of your summer!”
