Educational and National Conferences have enjoyed music-time and leisure time activities in the keynote presentations as they enjoy and have fun participating and learn. To add, this presenter added more than one session to share other areas: anxieties and fears in children, child's ethical thinking, today's technology as the child sees it, the importance of math and science and using the senses with the child under 5, 16 ways to interact with children and the "melting pot" of cultures found in children. With leadership groups,
communicating awareness with staff, the difficult people awareness, time management and motivation are key topics.
