Course Description


We all have bad days. From ripped materials and screaming students to failed learning activities and chaotic transitions, all school age professionals have days they wished they could do over again. With reflective practice school age professionals can take these past “failures” and transform them into future success. Join other school age professionals in an in-person training that explores the process of reflective practice in afterschool and summer camp environments. Through hands-on interaction and collaboration, participants will gain valuable insight in how to spot potential weaknesses in their teaching approach and develop these shortfalls into strengthens.

Each participant will receive 2.0 CHC for attending and completing all required coursework.

Registration is $15.00
