Throughout the four years that Judy Guenzel, founder of Learning Connections, Inc., was an educational consultant with Reading Rainbow, she created and presented workshops in the states of California, Ohio, Missouri, and Kansas. Judy is able to offer hands-on in-service workshops for teachers and/or families that are tailor-made for your school community. Workshops can be specially designed to meet the federal mandates for providing school-to-home connections that will help students succeed. She is able to customize workshops that meet the needs of any audience. Target audiences include teachers, parents, daycare providers, and anyone who works with children. Past workshops have emphasized parent involvement, integrating language arts with math and science, literacy in the home, and home-to-school connections, as well as specific topics for teachers.
