Childhood is calling! Will you answer?
There is no doubt that this short and precious stage of development has changed over the past 25 years. In the past, childhood was a time in life marked by imagination, make believe, games and hanging out - a time of spontaneity, creativity and curiosity. The word play evoked images of dolls and trucks, dress up and hide and seek, or hopscotch and jumping rope. Today, play is not valued and childhood has become a pressure cooker for many.
This session will address ways to put the child back in childhood, including supporting the sense of innocence and wonder.
Jeanine is the founder of The Fitzgerald Institute of Lifelong Learning; she specializes in research-based strategies in educational leadership, relationship-building, motivation, preventing the factors that compromise the fulfillment of a child’s maximum potential and implementing positive interventions in “real life” settings. She understands the daily struggles and frustrations of educators and parents, and honors the “hero within” each individual she has the privilege to work along side.
Jeanine is a speaker, consultant and master trainer. She has worked with thousands of children, professionals and parents across the country. The settings have been varied and included keynote presentations for The Child Welfare League of America, The New England Association for the Education of Young Children, The New England Head Start Association, The Vermont Foster and Adoptive Parent Association, The Children’s Trust Fund, and The Family Child Care Association of New York State. In addition, Jeanine has taught at the college level and presented on the campuses of The University of Rhode Island, Bryant University, Lyndon State College, and Harvard University. She is recognized on the federal level as an approved trainer in the fields of education, disabilities and mental health.
Jeanine has published The Dance of Interaction and a national training program entitled Education with Insight. Jeanine has appeared on public television in four states, and currently has air time in her home state of Massachusetts.
