A huge thank you to all of those that attended our 2019 Georgia Preschool Association Annual Conference, “Every Child Has a Voice, Every Teacher Has a Calling.” We had an opportunity to learn so many valuable teaching techniques, engage in so many knowledgeable sessions, and meet and network with new educators. This year’s conference, opened by Comer Yates Executive Director of the Atlanta Speech School; gave us new insight into teaching so that every child’s voice can be heard. What an enthusiastic and motivating Keynote speaker who challenged us to investigate our calling as a teacher.
