)-- Leah Koenig, Parent Coach and Love and Logic® facilitator, has been approved to provide STARS continuing education credits for teachers and other child care providers. Continuing education credits are required for teachers in Washington State in order for them to maintain their certification status. Training events must be provided by STARS Certified Trainers for those credits to be counted by The Department of Early Learning.
“I am excited to be a STARS certified trainer here in Washington. This means I can bring Love and Logic® not only to parents, but also to teachers and help create a more consistent approach to working with children.” Koenig says. “As a twenty plus year pre-school and elementary Montessori teacher, I know how important teachers are to the child’s developmental system.”
Leah Koenig is a Parent Coach at Collaborative Couples & Family Counseling, LLC, a private counseling practice located in Bellevue Washington. Her practice is focused on helping parents draw out their vision of a happy family life and coaching them toward this goal. She also provides Love and Logic's "Early Childhood Parenting Made Fun!" classes in the local area.
“I look forward to working with fellow teachers on helping them provide a rich learning environment that is constant and supported by the child’s home life.” Koenig says. "Introducing Love and Logic® is a perfect philosophy to use toward this goal."
