Roseann Murphy on Play Empowers Quarantine Conference

Roseann Murphy, my friend and colleague, was recently invited to participate in Play Empowers Quarantine Conference presented by Kisha Reid. Starting in March and going through May, the conference has been a virtual tool for educators, parents and professionals alike. During her panel, Roseanne was able to talk about the early days of her career as an authority in early childhood education as well as offer some practical insight. This was 40 years after the conversation with Magda Gerber and surprisingly the conversation remains very similar which is a testament to the timelessness of Magda Gerber’s message. Below is a link to the full video of the conference and more from the conference can be seen by visiting the Play Empowers- Sharing the Power of Play facebook page.
