I had the opportunity to become a Life is Good Playmaker this year. Playmakers are a group of people who are trained to bring joy, optimism and a love of life to children who have been affected by trauma, violence, illness and poverty. You can learn more about Playmakers or look at the schedule for future trainings at the Life is Good website. I've been a teacher for almost 20 years so I've attended a lot of trainings and workshops during that time. The LIG Playmakers training is by far the best training I've ever attended.
This photo comes from the LIG Playmakers. These are the people who volunteered to play games with children and their families. I'm in the back on the right hand side(the dark blue sleeve.)
