The Aspire Registry team has released their summer newsletter. Since 2015, the Aspire Registry Newsletter has discussed the latest Registry news and events, and highlighted the work of New York professionals in the field of early childhood. The newsletter also provides information about useful resources and tips for early childhood professionals. The newsletter is distributed to over 25,000 Aspire Registry members, a number that continues to grow.

In the summer newsletter, the Aspire Registry invites its members to explore the interactive Core Body of Knowledge (CBK): New York State’s Core Competencies for Early Childhood Educators. The CBK outlines the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required to work with young children. It is an essential resource for all early childhood educators, offering a road map for building meaningful relationships with children, families and colleagues and for developing oneself as a professional in this incredibly important field. While print copies of the CBK are available to order on the Institute’s website, the interactive CBK is online and allows users to easily navigate each core competency. Some competencies include links to additional resources or have corresponding videos of teachers and children in the classroom.  The Aspire Registry Team also shares information about the Aspire Statewide Training Calendar, a tool to search for professional development opportunities, and the Aspire Registry Attendance app that trainers use to take attendance. When trainers use the attendance app, members immediately get credit for attending the session on their Aspire Profile! In addition, the newsletter features a spotlight on a new member of the Aspire Registry Team, Roger David Torres. Roger shares what excites him about his new role as an Aspire Registry Associate and his hobbies outside of work.
