See you at the AAEYC Conference April 10 & 11

I will be speaking on Assessments at the upcoming AEYC Conference, April 10 & 11 at the ACC Eastview campus. Even experienced directors will find it worthwhile to come to hear what I have to say; I won’t say what you have heard over and over from others. Ever wondered  what the difference was between norm based and criterion based? Ever wonder how assessments could be used positively?  Every wonder what all the confusion was around testing? I can answer your questions.  Imagine having a real benefit, head and shoulders above the other centers around for your assessment. Imagine having no worries about your children’s transition to their next school. Imagine having no worries about how you will speak to their parents about this. You do not have to be an AEYC member to come. I will look for you!

Ferguson Says Diversity Training Still Very Relevant

I started doing “diversity training” back in the 1990s. I was wondering if it were really a “dead horse.”  Recent seminar feedback (diversity doesn’t apply here) and recent news (Ferguson. MO) suggest that it is still very relevant today. Please keep me in mind as your diversity trainer. Unlike most, I have a Master’s in Sociology and real experience dealing across barriers in a successful manner.  Yes, even if you are “just training in early childhood.”  Yes, especially if you are training any sort of teacher, you need someone with broad background, practical yes, but also scientific.  Not just someone pushing the latest trend. I have some thought-through and tested ideas — ideas that seem to be entirely new to most. Don’t be hemmed in by looking just where your feet are.  Look around to see where you might go.  Then find someone who knows the landscape, and follow her.  Call me today to book me for any training having to do with diversity or conflict reduction. 512/249-7629.

What People are Saying

Would you like Sharon to come back? “Yes! Every day of the year!” Phillip Merritt Owner of ABC Preparatory Academies in Austin Texas

“Sharon has strong abilities in critical thinking. She also has excellent instincts in grasping issues before all the information has been revealed. There have been some occasions where I assumed what she was saying could not possibly be accurate, but in the end she was proved right when the facts were revealed. I trust (or at least pay serious attention) to her opinions.” Walter Lee, former Engineer, Retired Minister PC(USA), QVR Board Member
