Dallas ISD is hosting inaugural pre-K conference 

Hundreds of Dallas ISD pre-K teachers will be attending the district’s inaugural conference—“It’s a Pre-K World.” 

The day-long conference—”In the wonderful world of pre-K, anything is possible”—will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, at Thomas Jefferson High School. The conference is designed to develop, celebrate and appreciate the hard work and dedication of the district’s pre-K teachers. 

The conference will offer high quality professional development sessions and recognize and honor the invaluable contributions of pre-K teachers.

“The conference aims to inspire our pre-K teachers and remind them that we set the foundation for inquiry, fostering curiosity and a love of learning in all students,” said Jessica Adam, pre-K instructional strategy coordinator of Early Learning. “Not only do we improve student achievement outcomes, we inspire the next generation of leaders to become who they were destined to be.” 

Professional development sessions at the conference include:

  • Understanding Basic Brain Functions and Social Emotional Connection
  • Estrategias para pasar del control a la conexión en el aula de clases
  • Utilizing Fine Motor Activities to Build the “Write” Foundation
  • Reimagining the Classroom: Transforming Waste into Educational Wonder with Upcycling

In addition to the opportunity to connect with fellow pre-K teachers and gain new knowledge and tools, attendees will have an opportunity to earn five hours of professional development credit for attending the full day. Ali Oliver, an early childhood education and conscious discipline expert, will be the keynote speaker.

Spots are limited. More information is located in Curriculum Central on the pre-K conference page. To register, visit Cornerstone at https://dallasisd.csod.com.
