Session One: Beginnings - Tuesday, Aug 23

We'll discuss part one of Havens of Hope, exploring whether the events of 2020-2022 in the world of education place us at a possible founding moment for education, on the cusp of something new. 

Session Two: Adversity And Possibility - Thursday, Aug, 25

Delving into our part two of Havens of Hope as well as our own stories of teaching and leading through the past few epic years, we'll consider ways of transforming the wisdom we've earned into new possibilities for learning. 

Session Three:
Igniting The Best Within Ourselves And Within Our Schools  Sunday, Aug 28

Reviewing part three of Havens of Hope, we'll shift to designing your own customized plan for igniting the best within yourself and within your school in the coming school year and beyond. 

Hey there, I'm Dr. Shira.

After 20 years as an elementary and middle school principal, I opened my own childcare center and preschool.  
That was in July, 2019.  

I designed a magical program at Discovery Village . . . offering children the care of a village, the creativity of an art studio, and the discovery of a science lab.  I built up enrollment.  

And then . . . March, 2020 happened. You know what that means.

Discovery Village remained open. Just north of New York City we found ourselves in one of the first and worst hot spots, suddenly deemed an essential business, open when other schools and businesses went remote or entirely shut down.

And in the process, we not only navigated through. We got better.  

I recognized others were also finding strength and possibility through the adversity, we hadn't previously imagined. Wanting to document our experiences, I wrote Havens of Hope.  

And now, with so much wisdom earned, it's time to take what we've learned and apply it to redesign learning for our times.
