Educators’ Neighborhood is a community of educators who learn together inspired from the life and work of Fred Rogers. We study episodes of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, read from the Fred Rogers Center archive, and connect ideas to our daily practice with young children.
We define “educator” broadly to include all helpers who work in the service of children’s learning and care (formal and informal educators, care providers, therapists, librarians, museum docents, tutors, coaches, and others).
Educators’ Neighborhood will host another series of webinars during the 2021-22 school year. During each session, we’ll grow a conversation around a theme as we watch episode clips of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and hear from a panel of educators from our Educators’ Neighborhood learning community.
All events are free and open to the public. Registration is required. Everyone who registers will receive a link to the recording.
If you’d like to access a recording of a previous Community Sharing Event, including events from the 2020-21 school year, please email us to make a request: email@example.com
