The Bess Choice! Teaching U.

Over ninety workshops have been developed by The Bess Choice! Teaching U. for early childhood educators, administrators, and directors. The workshops were all created from the many and varied courses Cindy taught at the undergraduate level and honed further through years of preschool classroom teaching experience.  Additionally, time spent directing a nursery school program, as well as a lifetime of raising two daughters provide good supplemental stories to illustrate and elucidate the varied points.
