Speaking and In-Service
Renata’s in-services are a great opportunity for teachers to learn new songs, storytelling and multicultural ideas for everyday interactions. They are designed to boost confidence in the area of the creative arts and to excite fun programs for early childhood. Teachers will walk away inspired with tools essential to help children to have fun while learning.Renata has been performing and writing for young children since 2001. She has worked in early childhood since 1990 both overseas and in Australia.
Over 10 of those years were spent in the relief industry where she experienced a wide variety of teaching styles and creative ideas for children’s programs.
Renata now travels all over to speak and present at early childhood conferences and delivers in-services with her own CD’s, books and DVDs to compliment these workshops. She is available in person and online to present workshops.
