Professional Learning Workshops

 Due to COVID-19 concerns, Mansfield ISD will host professional learning workshops virtually until further notice.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.

2020-21 Workshops

Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, all of our 2020-21 workshops are being hosted online. The workshop includes a virtual tour of the facility, professional development webinars in experienced-based instruction and access to follow-up video conferencing with an early childhood specialist.
