    Good morning everyone,

    I hope your school year is off to a great start. I am so excited about this year's opportunities to connect. For the last few years we've focused on trauma informed practices that are Bible integrated. We are equipping educators who serve students birth through 2nd grade to cultivate resilience and understand God's design for the brain.

    If you are in central division, join us in Bartlesville, OK where Dr. Barbara Sorrels with Connected Kids will provide a competency aligned and evidence based understanding of brain development. She shares both best practices in instructional practices and leadership based on neuroscience. Check out a location near you or access the pre-recorded resources produced by Dr. Barbara Sorrels, Friendzy, Dr. Rebecca Spencer, Mary Ann Bradberry, Dr. Lynn Hoeskstra, and many others in the Early Education community. The Flourishing Schools Institute also provides a teacher track with individualized instruction sessions. Your school may qualify for Title II funding for the FSI. Many presenters provide professional development funding guides that may be helpful in funding for registration and/or Title I or IV funds for their curriculum.

    Contact your Divisional Director or Senior Coordinator for additional information regarding the upcoming virtual conference February 16 or 24. I pray that this is the best year ever and each stakeholder will flourish.

    All the best,

    Dr. Penn
