Early Childhood Professionals with Pizzazz!
Joshua Alvarez, MA, Education Consultant, Kaplan Early Learning Company, CA
Do you feel excited each day you work with young children? Or, are you feeling burned out, tired or can’t wait for the weekend to get here? You will be taken on an exciting journey by putting the PIZZAZZ/spark into your daily responsibilities. When you have that PIZZAZ, positive attitude and excitement, then everybody else around you will be excited and have a positive ATTITUDE too! Learn innovative ways and strategies to keep yourself, children, parents and staff in a positive mode. Your positive thoughts, your positive actions and your positive ATTITUDE will become your destiny. You will be reminded how we play an essential part in setting the foundation for our future. Everything we say and everything we do matters in the lives of children and their families. That is why we have to be intentional and dedicated on a daily basis. Being that intentional professional will keep us committed to the child development principles and will keep us being sensitive to the needs of children and their families. You will leave this keynote fueled and ready to make an impact in our future.
