This page describes some workshops I have developed. I am open to working with your group to create a workshop designed to meet your exact needs.
I have a whole set of Head Start workshops, keyed to the CDA competencies, and I have often been a Head Start trainer. Please ask.
Sometimes you need a paragraph about me. Here is one. I’ll be glad to write you one that is longer or shorter or meets other needs; please have me do that, since sometimes what others write about me is surprising (and sometimes even inaccurate!). Thanks.
