According to WQED's YouTube Channel

"iQ Smartparent Teachable Moments is series of one-minute videos that features a diverse group of educators sharing fun and fascinating learning experiences that children and their families can do - anywhere!"

Ms. Jen Ford, School Counselor for both Borland Manor and Wylandville Elemenatry, was featured in the Teachable Moment series found by clicking here. According to their YouTube Channel her Teachable Moment is about Modeling Mistakes:

"How can we make children more comfortable when they make mistakes? By setting good examples when we make them ourselves! Jen Ford, guidance counselor at Wylandville Elementary School in Eighty-Four, PA, explains the power of talking about mistakes, and how this can be a valuable tool in teaching children how to approach their own missteps in life."

Ms. Ford was chosen because of Wylandville Elementary's partnership with WQED. Wylandville Elementary was named as a "Ready to Learn Learning Neighborhood Partner" last year. According to a press release that was released last year,

"This five-year cycle project will be funded by a CPB and PBS comprehensive multimedia learning and station engagement initiative, which will connect children’s media and their learning environments to build key skills for success. The grant will provide resources to twelve PBS stations, including WQED, to implement local partnerships in the Pittsburgh region."
