Wow, it is a big change for me to travel from Chicago to Arizona. It was starting to get hot at home (and humid) but this is an entirely different level of hot! I’m glad it is dry, but this kind of heat sneaks up on you.
Debra Murphy and I took a walk around the conference areas yesterday to get oriented. Things seem to be in order.
We found out that we had both chosen the same session to attend this morning without knowing it – great minds think alike!
We will attend “Teaching and assessing ethics online: Emotional intelligence, dispositions, and professional ethics”. Doesn’t that sound interesting?
My colleague from Chicago and an ACCESS member, Jennifer Asimow is presenting along with colleagues Catherine Main from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Kathleen Sheridan from National-Louis University.
After the morning session, the ACCESS Board will meet for several hours to talk about where the organization is at, and where we are going. Any suggestions? Please leave a comment!
Tonight at 7:30 there will be a NAEYC Rally entitled, “Creating a welcoming, supportive climate for ALL young children and families in early childhood education.
I’ll keep you posted on the events.
