Professional Learning Workshops
Professional Learning Tours for the 2023-24 school term are now available. Get your spot reserved today!The Dr. Sarah K. Jandrucko Academy for Early Learners is a school created to improve school readiness of young children using creative, hands-on, interactive experiences within a research based early childhood program.
Our mission is to dramatically change early childhood education across our nation by demonstrating innovative and transformative teaching methods and experiences that may be replicated for our youngest learners outside of the walls of the Academy for Early Learners.
The district is offering professional learning workshops to share how our district developed an early childhood education program based on experiential learning. All interested educators are encouraged to attend.
Mansfield ISD will offer four full-day workshops for $150 per attendee. Our in-person workshop includes a tour of the facility, classroom observations of experience-based instruction and access to follow-up video conferencing with an early childhood specialist. Each participant will also receive a T-shirt and a folder containing a facility map, research, logistics and curriculum support.
