corporate-keynote-steveEmmy award-winning and YouTube celebrity Steve Spangler will bring his science magic to the stage for the 33rd Annual R.T. Garcia Early Childhood Winter Conference Saturday, Jan. 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Kingdom Builders Center, 6011 W. Orem Dr., Houston. Over 1,000 early childhood educators are expected this year and will have the chance to network with experts in the field. Topics of interest include classroom safety and security and developing social emotional intelligence. The Harris County Department of Education conference — a tradition for generations of educators of pre-k through second grade since 1986 — features over 60 breakout sessions for educators. Keynote speakers are best-selling author Steve Spangler, who will do just about anything to get people excited about science, and bilingual specialist Laurie Weaver, who will focus on differences between English and Spanish and how those differences affect early literacy instruction.
