Uniquely Qualified Instructor
Betsy Stenklyft is a veteran educator with extensive experience working with students and teachers. The mother of three grown children (that counts!), Betsy, spent many years teaching kindergarten, Pre-K and working as an intervention specialist. She has taught in both rural and suburban settings, as well as in predominantly English language learning schools. Beyond the classroom, Betsy has served as a literacy mentor and has consulted with numerous schools and districts.
Like you, Betsy is currently teaching and will need to get a substitute to attend! She understands the real challenges facing teachers today and is passionate about creating success for students, particularly those who start school behind. You will enjoy her fast-paced, light-hearted, and informative presentation style.
Join Betsy for this thought-provoking, practical seminar. You will leave the seminar with an understanding of the readiness gap and with proven strategies that you can implement tomorrow to reach those students who come to school already behind.
