A community conversation about childhood


Fri, May 3rd, 2013
Posted in Rushford Education

Join Katy Smith, Parent Educator from Winona and the 2011 Minnesota Teacher of the Year in a lively conversation about childhood and what kids need from it on Thursday, May 16 at 6:30pm at the Rushford-Peterson School Theater, free of charge.

Katy is passionate about the creating champions for childhood in the adults who care about kids whether they are parents, providers, teachers or community members. Important life skills are wired in those first years of life. Today’s culture of childhood has taken a sharp turn from teaching kids those life skills.

Katy is a storyteller and a community educator who will inspire us to reclaim those skills on behalf of children. You will leave armed with plenty of food for thought, and new skills. This will be a fun, entertaining evening of hopeful conversation.

Katy Smith is a licensed parent educator with two undergraduate degrees in social work and parent education from Winona State University. She has a master’s degree in Education from the University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse and she is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Early Childhood Public Policy and Advocacy from Walden University. She lives and teaches in Winona with her husband. They have three grown daughters. Katy is the 2011 Minnesota Teacher of the Year, the first early childhood educator and parent educator to be honored with the award.

Thank you to our sponsors for this event: R-P Community Ed/ECFE Program, Ace Communications, Fillmore County Collaborative/ECI Committee, and Good Shepherd Lutheran Child Care
