The Council for Professional Recognition is pleased to announce that Teachstone® has renewed its sponsorship support for the 2019 Early Educators Leadership Conference (EELC).

EELC is an annual early childhood education conference hosted by the Council that attracts national and international professionals and leaders in the field. This year’s conference will be held Oct. 8–11 at the Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Keynote speakers include the executive director of Leading for Children, Judy Jablon; the president/CEO of United Way of Greater Atlanta, Milton J. Little, Jr.; and the CEO of the Council for Professional Recognition, Valora Washington, Ph.D., CAE.

“We are delighted to have Teachstone as a three-time returning sponsor of the 2019 EELC this fall. Their participation and support will surely engage early childhood professionals who are seeking to gain more expertise in their careers through developmentally appropriate practices and educational training,” said Dr. Washington.

Teachstone will be a Gold Sponsor for the 2019 EELC.

Teachstone’s CDA with CLASS® and CDA Renewal with CLASS® have received the Council’s Gold Standard certification. In addition to meeting the Council’s Gold Standard requirements, the programs provide an introduction to the Classroom Assessment Scoring System® (CLASS®).

CLASS is the most evidence-based and widely used assessment of teaching quality. More than 200 research studies demonstrate that children in classrooms with more effective teacher-student interactions, as measured by CLASS, make gains in areas critical for success in school and life, including:

  • Social/emotional learning;
  • Social competence;
  • Relationships with teachers;
  • Language, literacy and mathematics; and
  • Overall behavior, engagement and participation.

CLASS, which is used by organizations in all 50 states and in 50 countries around the world, has impacted the lives of more than six million children globally.


The Council for Professional Recognition promotes improved performance and recognition of professionals in the early childhood education of children ages zero to five years old. The Council recognizes and credentials professionals who work in all types of early care and education settings – Head Start, pre-k, infant-toddler, family child care and home visitor programs. As a nonprofit organization, the Council sets policies and procedures for assessment and credentialing and publishes industry-leading training books and workbooks, including its CDA Competency Standards and the Essentials for Working with Young Children textbook and workbook (2nd edition), all of which are available in English and Spanish. www.cdacouncil.org


If you improve how teachers connect with students, children achieve more — now and for the rest of their lives. That’s the promise of CLASS. Teachstone delivers on that promise by bringing CLASS observations and professional development solutions to organizations everywhere.
