Teachers Participate In Workshop at The Advent School

Seven Belmont Day faculty–Betty Chu Pryor, Emily Crawford, Josh Sussman, Kim Edwards, Leigh Twarog, Mike Marroquin-Castillo, and Ana Maria Restrepo–attended last week’s workshop organized and hosted by The Advent Collaborative at The Advent School in Boston entitled “Courageous Conversations: Why Talking with Children Matters.”

The day started with a panel of early childhood, elementary, and high school educators who discussed the importance of meaningful conversations with young students on topics of diversity, identity, and justice. Afterward, participants engaged in two interactive workshops to continue the theme and deepen their learning.

After School Teachers Attend National Conference

After school teachers Sam Staples and Presley Leighton attended the National AfterSchool Association’s annual convention this week in Dallas, Texas. Sam and Presley joined hundreds of their peers from across the country for workshops that centered on the theme of belonging. The workshops offered strategies for creating inclusive experiences, centering equity and joy, and strengthening the pillars of social-emotional learning in after school programs. We are thrilled to have them back on campus to share their experience and takeaways!
