Deepen Your Teaching Practice!

Honor Children' Ideas

  • Document learning through stories that leave you feeling you are doing the right job, at the right time, with the right children.
  • Watch children lead with their ideas in art processes and know you are doing sacred work giving children their own voice in education.
  • Give children pockets of magic outdoors that delight and enliven your own teaching spirit.

Honoring Children's Thinking

  • Support cognitive growth with Loose Parts and experience a powerful sense of effectiveness that you are serving their academic needs.
  • Open the Door to Magical Learning for Ones and Twos and discover the capacity and competency of children.

Honor Children's Feelings

  • Redirect children's behavior with mindfulness and love – and feel a deep sense of peace even after a rough day.
  • Cultivate a culture of kindness and empathy in your classroom so that you know you have deeply connected to the children in your care and supported their growth as a community.
  • Honor the dignity of children with guiding principles inspired by Fred Rogers with the knowledge you were born to teach young children.

The Dignity of All Children

  • Children have rights.
  • Children are citizens NOW, not in the future.
  • Children have a right to be heard in their educational journey.

It is time to honor all children.

I'm Sally Haughey, founder of Fairy Dust Teaching and the Wonder Tribe.

This fall I had the incredible experience of watching the documentary “Won't You Be My Neighbor” about the late PBS children's show host Fred Rogers.    

In this documentary, it was so profoundly apparent that Fred Roger honored the rights of children. . .the right to express their feelings, the right to struggle with tough topics, the right to question what we do not understand.

 Join educators from around the world – putting a stake in the ground for honoring the dignity of all children.

Sher

This conference was just what I needed! I am moving into a new teaching situation and due to the conference I feel so energized, excited, and ready to go with all the great ideas and information I received! Thank you!

Cristina

I enjoyed every minute of this conference! I gained so much knowledge and was so excited that I shared with my colleagues and started implementing the new ideas. It gave our classroom a new look and children were enthusiastically engaged in exploration.

Mary, Director

This was my first experience with an online conference. I am a director at a Cooperative Preschool, and we decided to have our whole staff (16 teachers an administrators) participate. In summary, we have LOVED this conference. We had so many wonderful discussions during staff meetings about our observations, takeaways, how we might extend this work to our classrooms, etc. I will definitely be participating in future conference opportunities.
