What a great conference in Dallas – and what fun to share it with my daughter Christy Isbell! As many of you know we share a professional interest in “Environments That Work for All Children” and have written several books on this topic.
We are so busy, but it was very special to have time to talk about appropriate environments, share stories, and meet new friends.
The meeting with consulting editors for NAEYC was a highlight and was lead by two amazing early childhood professionals, Kathy Charner and Derry Koralek. In addition, we made new friends from Denmark and found that we shared many design ideas and principles for creating wonderful environments for young children. The Danish connection has been such a positive experience for me and helped me grow as an early childhood educator.
We did take some time for eating Tex Mex and seeing one tourist site in our hotel: the Tower.
Plan to attend the NAEYC Conference next year in Orlando Florida on November 18-21, 2015. Let’s plan to meet at this wonderful conference next year!
