My workshop on Honoring the Whole Child: Nurturing Spirituality will be held on Thursday, November 15 at 3:00 p.m, as part of the 2018 National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) conference, November 14–17, 2018, in Washington, DC.

My co-presenters are Jennifer Mata-McMahon, Assistant Professor, Mata Consulting, LLC; and Michael Haslip, Assistant Professor, Drexel University.

The session is ideal for early childhood educators of children of all ages. Participants will learn about findings from our survey of in-service educators regarding their support of children’s spirituality in early childhood settings; we’ll use those findings to help workshop participants reflect on how to use the recommended strategies in their own educational settings, to nurture children’s spirituality from a holistic perspective of social and emotional development.

NAEYC conferences bring together early childhood teachers, students,  administrators, researchers and teacher educators  to share and explore the latest research in the field, and learn from one another.
