Keynote Session:
Re-igniting Your Passion

Part of professionalism is fueling yourself so you can ignite the passion in others. As a trainer you have to give so much it is sometimes easy to become burned out.

Together we will re-ignite your passion thus increasing your ability to give to others. Ultimately, your desire to improve the lives of children is the fundamental core of why you give and serve as a professional in the field of early childhood.

Keynote Speaker: Jill Soto
In her role as Client Consortium Coordinator, Jill currently serves eight state registries, one regional registry, and one national organization. She worked at the Center for Early Childhood Professional Development for 18 years, operating the Oklahoma professional development system which includes the statewide registry and environment rating scales project.
Jill has presented workshop sessions at many state and local events across Oklahoma, as well as national events including: The National Workforce Registry Alliance Conference, NAEYC Annual Conference, BUILD Initiative, NAEYC Professional Development Institute, and NAEYC Professional Learning Institute.
