Currently in my position as Early Learning Wi-Fi Manager, I have trained approximately of 716 teachers, facility directors, community partners, and parent facilitators. Attended ten conferences presenting and/or exhibiting at seven of those conferences. Through SCETV’s partnership with the South Carolina After School Alliance I have conducted eight after school training events across the state of South Carolina. Four of those events have been On-The-Road regional events servicing K-12 after school programs in the Georgetown, York, Florence and Edgefield communities and surrounding areas. To date, I have conducted and facilitated 34 total workshops throughout the state of South Carolina. This resulted in a total of 51.5 hours of training.
