Picturing Your Best as a Teacher

See it when you wake up and when you have your cup of coffee. Feel it when you drive to your room and even when you walk in the door. Know it when you are with your children and when you see the room and facility in the rear view mirror every day…know it…feel it…. Picture yourself as the best teacher.

Parents Need the Little Things From You

What you do during the day with children is important and what you do and say to the parent before they leave the child and when they pick them up is more impacting that you realize.

Helping Preschoolers Really See the Bible
