We are grateful to the school districts who have opened their classroom doors to us to allow filming of their teachers, leaders, students and families. Without their commitment to advancing the field of early childhood education, this project would not be possible. We were amazed by their hospitality and our hearts warmed to see the collegiality among educators and the level of care and high learning expectations that they demonstrated for their students. In these videos you will see their dedication “come to life” as they share their craft knowledge and instructional practice in providing the highest quality of education to their students.
