G8 Education 2019 Conference

March 19th 2019 at the Gold Coast Convention Centre

Sandi Phoenix will be presenting an opening Key Note at the G8 Education conference bringing together 500+ centre managers from all over Australia. 

Keynote: It’s not attention seeking, it’s connection seeking.

Through story and metaphor, Sandi will explain a theoretical framework around basic human life needs as motivators for human behaviour. Educators will be inspired to revisit their image of the child and think differently about power over approaches to ‘managing’ children’s behaviour. The session will provide educators with a practical framework, The Phoenix Cups, that will allow them to immediately make more effective decisions about supporting children’s behavioural learning. Through a story about Jet pack man, participants will explore pedagogy and play through various lenses including fun and connection.

Offspring Education Podcast

🌟  5 Cups an Educator MUST be Filling to Feel Fulfillment  🌟

Do not miss this if you're an EDUCATOR!

Our Founder Lara Jennings sat down (across the phone lines) with Sandi Phoenix from  Phoenix Support for Educators . They recorded a fantastic PODCAST - talking everything Phoenix Cups in celebration of Feel Good February  🧡  (good vibes & good deeds for the world).

If you're an EDUCATOR you certainly will be filling MANY cups... the cups of the children you care for and perhaps the cups of your fellow Educators...

BUT, you can't fill from an empty cup! As an Educator, YOU are responsible for filling your own cups (or at least making a plan to fill your cups). Once you are filling your cups, you can then pour into others.

* What do you do to fill your cups?
* Did you know you need to be filling your own cup before pouring into another's cup?
* Have you ever filled a fellow educators cup through a good deed or a random act of kindness?
* Has a fellow educator ever done this for YOU?

We would love to know. And we are sure other Educators would too. Please share!

Here's a link to the PODCAST with Lara Jennings and Sandi Phoenix
