Administrators Workshop for Tools of the Mind- Monday July 13

On Monday July 13 most district administrators will take part in a 4 hour Tools of the Mind training that will take place at the Brandt Professional Development Center (3rd floor) from 9am-1pm. All the elementary principals as well as those having any work with preK or K students will be in attendance. Other administrators are encouraged to attend. 

Tools of the Mind is an early childhood curriculum for preschool and kindergarten children, based on the ideas of Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky. The curriculum is designed to foster children’s executive function, which involves developing self-regulation, working memory, and cognitive flexibility.
