Judy Shipman

Mrs. Shipman and Mrs. Oltman will create an outdoor space to implement early childhood best practices. The cohort will create lessons through Creative Curriculum, a standards based research tool currently implemented at Jefferson Early Childhood Center. Planned activities across subject areas will foster sequenced, developmental growth that correlates with Illinois Early Learning Standards. Through the outdoor learning space, Mrs. Shipman and her colleagues will foster an enriched child-centered learning environment for students, their families, and members of the community.
