Lisa Murphy, founder of Ooey Goey, has been leading seminars in the early childhood education education community for nearly 20 years. She has presented at schools and events all over the world, including NAEYC, where our staff found her. Her sessions are energetic, informative and highly applicable to the preschool classroom. The focus will be on creating a child-centered environment at school as well as a plethora of ideas and strategies for the preschool classroom. She will be running a full day seminar (there is no half-day option) that promises to be a very special event indeed.


Covenant Players


For over forty years, Covenant Players has used the dramatic arts to support the work of educators and social workers throughout the world. They use drama in the classroom to develop confidence and coordination, build teamwork and help students address the universal themes that address the universal human condition. This workshop will focus on helping teachers to effectively implement drama in the preschool classroom and engage students of all personalities and backgrounds. Participants should come prepared to have fun, participate and experience the wonderful world of imagination and how it can be used as an educational resource. This will be a half-day seminar available in both the morning and afternoon.


A flyer and instructions for registration will be coming soon. We hope as many of you as possible will take this opportunity to join TAIP’s 2016 Fall Annual Conference.
