2019 Educators' Night Out
Tuesday, October 29, 2019
Resource Fair: 4-6pm.
This FREE and fun event showcased opportunities and resources available to classrooms throughout the county and offered teachers an opportunity to gather new, innovative teaching resources. Educators and their families were invited to explore the Museum’s latest art installations, learn about educational opportunities at The New Children’s Museum, and visit community partner booths with information on school field trips, teacher training and in-classroom education.
Speaker Presentation (Optional): 6-7pm
Following the resource fair, there was an optional post-event presentation on Supporting Gender Diverse Youth. Speaker Kathie Moehlig, Executive Director of TransFamily Support Services, as well as a certified life coach, parenting instructor and motivational speaker, provided attendees with the tools and resources they need to deeply understand issues around gender, and to use this knowledge to support, respect and empower youth.
