We are now accepting presenter applications for the 2019 California Kindergarten conference. Our evening event’s theme will be social emotional skills and classroom management. We would like to offer presentations related to that theme.

We’ve also had requests for presentations related to effectively teaching ELL students and students with special needs and learning differences, and how to incorporate more opportunities for developing motor skills.
