Dr. Julia Williams, Associate Professor & Director of Graduate Studies for the College of Education and Human Services Professions at UMD will be joining us this week as our guest speaker.  We will also be joined by our Junior Rotarians.
Dr. Williams is the author of the book "Jules on Schools, Teaching, Learning and Everything in Between."  
Overview: Teachers and Parents: This timely collection of essays addresses the rewarding work of supporting schools and nurturing the learning of schoolchildren today.  In writing this caring, funny, and lyrical commentary, Dr. Williams draws from a deep well of professional knowledge as well as the personal experience of having raised six children as a mom and a stepmom. Beginning with the idea that all of us are trying to do the right thing for kids, she shares with readers some of the wonders that are being discovered about how children learn, and she illuminates how schools and parents can use what the research is telling us. As Williams says in the book, "We all need to learn and grow and go forward in our roles, holding hands and reaching out to embrace the opportunity that surrounds us and the children we love."
