SPRING into Learning!
Whole Child Collaborative Conference

Join us for The Whole Child, a full-day of collaborative learning workshops on Friday, April 27th at the International House in Philadelphia! Registration and a light breakfast begins at 8:30am.

Meet Our Presenters!
Once a young student himself, Nahjee Grant was faced with many academic challenges. When all else failed, writing became his outlook. He is an entrepreneur, author of 8 children’s books, community activist, a television host, and philanthropist. He shares his own failures to allocate for his successes today.

By the time the workshop is over, you will be able to:

  • Explore the benefits of having students journal daily (even for the little ones).
  • Bring awareness to the power of literature and how it can be used to facilitate conversations between the teacher and student.
  • Understand the power of perseverance, resilience and self-discipline as a learner and a teacher.

Peter Moses of The Mindful Experience LLC has more than 20 years of experience directing enrichment program services for the early childhood field in the greater Philadelphia region. Peter has been a trainer for early childhood conferences and school in-services. He is a music educator and children’s recording artist having produced ten original CD collections, and is the author of three inspiring audio books for kids. His session will offer a mindfulness orientation, breathing and centering practices, partner activities, mindful music, movement, relaxations and meditations. Success tips for mindful transitions, in-class practices as well as family-life activities and games will also be included.

Daily, Dr. Leanne Magee’s work consists of promoting and supporting the most appropriate, obtainable path for the children and families dealing with physical abnormalities, in both congenital cases and cases that occur for the child after birth. She is a published author who has worked with Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences as well as Psychology Services. After attending this session, you will walk away with a better understanding of inclusion in the classroom and how you can set up appropriate classroom environments and policies that support the individual needs of students, as well as understand key elements regarding the child’s social and emotional development needs, especially those who are living with physical abnormalities.
