The PALMS Colloquia Group
Building an Inspiring Environment
Speaker: Diann Jeppson
Thursday, November 13, 7:00 – 8:30 pm
When it comes to the education of our children, parents have lots of options! We can invite, coax, strongly suggest, bribe, beg, threaten or just wait and hope they decide to move. Or we can choose to think in an entirely new way – a way that in the beginning evokes a level of uncertainty that is as deep as our culture. We can inspire. At the outset, inspiring children sounds like a monumental feat – best left to highly trained experts. This workshop will supply you with tools for this great work of inspiring (and I do mean work!) that you can take home and put to immediate use. My objective is for you to leave this workshop knowing and feeling your capacity for building an inspiring environment for the education of your children. Possibilities abound! Come and see.
