The Office for Exceptional Children is pleased to announce the 2016 Outstanding Special Education Leadership Award winners. Named in honor of Kathe Shelby, Director of Ohio’s Office for Exceptional Children from 2008-11, the award is presented to leaders who have demonstrated exceptional and effective skills in improving the quality of special education for Ohio’s school children and youth.
The holiday season is upon us, along with the anxiety and stress that are likely to accompany it (for a variety of reasons). And where there is stress, there are people attempting to cope. How does that look in your home? We’ve got a healthy coping strategy to help you through all the hustle and bustle; it’s one that doesn’t always get its due credit, but one the whole family can benefit from: laughter.
Good and effective leadership makes a powerful difference . . . in any industry! Successful early childhood leaders foster positive, supportive cultures and build great teams that serve and enrich the lives of young children.
However, as an early childhood professional, the challenges you face can leave you feeling burned out, stressed out, and tired!
For these reasons, Ohio AEYC is making The Serving Leader workshops available for early childhood professionals in Ohio. This proven model will equip you to energize your team, and better serve the students and families in your community. Register Today!

Veterans Day was Nov. 11; an opportunity to thank all military personnel, past and present, for their service and sacrifice for our country and our freedom. As you continue to share your appreciation, please extend your gratitude and recognition to all the military family members as well – for their sacrifice is also great.
