We know budgets are tight and travel is difficult in the current fiscal climate,
so we’re especially pleased when decision-makers recognize the value of professional
development. It’s during times like this when it is critical to invest in
professional development to continue upgrading the skills needed for the
important work early childhood professionals do. That’s where the 2012 Parents as Teachers Conference in St. Louis comes in.
Two keynoters, Roland Warren, noted fatherhood expert, and Dr. Temple Grandin, a renowned author on autism and Asperger’s, are the highlights of this year’s Parents as Teachers Conference. But the conference centers around more than 40 workshops that provide valuable information about new funding for early childhood initiatives and discuss emerging issues related to education and workforce development. You’ll learn how others are tackling current economic and workforce challenges, and participate in many opportunities to collaborate, connect, share and learn.
This conference focuses on the supervisors and program coordinators, the parent educators and home visitors, the conveners and decision-makers from every state who coordinate and provide the services that make families stronger and futures brighter. Your professional growth and development is important to the children and families you serve!
Please join us November 7-9 in St. Louis!
