The Shepherd's Academy for Teaching Excellence

The aforementioned rates are subject to change. On site workshops are typically booked a minimum of 30 business days in advance. If the program is cancelled for any reason more than thirty (30) days prior to the agreed date, it is our policy to reschedule (within the reasonable time of 12 months) for the same fee without a cancellation fee. Should we be forced to cancel a training less than thirty days before the date of the training the full speaking fee is due and payable by the date of the original program. Pre-registered attendees may transfer registration and attend another workshop of the same length with pre-approval. All speaking engagements contain copyrighted material and may not be reproduced or distributed without the express written permission of Penn Consulting. Audio and/or video rights are negotiable. I look forward to working with your organization to enhance the quality of programs for Georgia's children.

Schedule your on site training for a group of ten or more staff members today and receive a discount. The registration must be submitted 30 business days in advance in order to reserve the date for your program. Mileage is $.565/diem for non-ACSI member schools outside a 50 mile radius.

“I can't say enough about Mrs. Althea Penn. She is the definition of a professional woman. I have utilized her consulting and training services for a number of years at two schools. She is very knowledgeable and well versed in the early childhood education industry standards and best practices. She has facilitated professional development workshops for my staff for a number of years; and still keeps their attention and keeps them engaged. She always arrives early and well prepared.
