Virtual Keynotes & Conferences

Dr. Isbell provides Virtual Keynotes for conferences and Consultations via Zoom for Study Groups and Professional Development. In her informative, supportive, and joyful conversations, she provides the latest information, helps educators understand their importance, and includes observations of young children that clearly demonstrate how learning occurs in active and engaging ways. Dr. Isbell’s Virtual Opportunities are uplifting, positive, personal, and will get your conference, program, and team off to an exciting beginning!

As much as I like adult conversation, [Dr. Isbell’s presentation] has been my best Zoom yet!

You are so wonderful! Thank you for your inspiring early childhood sessions.

We appreciate your flexibility during these crazy times. The feedback about your virtual webinar have been great–4.5-5 stars. We hope to work with you again in the future!

Virtual Keynote Speaker & Author

My early childhood education keynotes celebrate the positive influence that teachers have on young children during the critical early years of development. My sessions are energetic, full of laughter, but also contain cutting edge information that can be applied in their diverse settings.

For the past twelve years I have been a keynote speaker, workshop leader, and featured speaker at many different professional conferences and early childhood meetings all over the world. These speaking experiences have ranged from local PreK conferences to regional ECE conferences to international educator meetings.

My goal is that each person will leave my session with new ideas and creative possibilities.

Every virtual ECE keynote and breakout session is tailored to the special group I am working with so my information is right on target for their needs.

  • Documenting children’s thought processes and displaying their work
  • Involving families and the community in children’s creative endeavors
