Over 180 Educators Attend Early Childhood Education Conference
November 15, 2012 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
The annual Early Childhood Education Conference was a positive and well-received event. Nearly 180 educators from the Jewish Early Childhood Centers in Metro Detroit for a day of learning and connecting. Our Keynote Speaker, Marty Appelbaum delivered a powerful, funny and informative keynote address on “Say Less & Get More COOPERATION!” Marty’s humor, southern charm and interactive style made him a true joy to learn from. Our workshop presenters were equally as stimulating and informative: Anita Batt, Lori Serbin Lasday, Rachel Levine and Lissie Rothstein and Marty Appelbaum covered topics that were relevant and timely for our early childhood educators. We were fortunate to have our day conclude with an inspiring text-based Endnote Address given by Rabbi Tzvi Muller.
The day also included the presentation of the prestigious, nationally recognized Grinspoon-Steinhardt Award to Rachel Levine, who is a teacher in the Adat Shalom Early Childhood Center. Rachel joins a cadre of nationally recognized teachers who excel in the field of Jewish education.
