😔 We know that many of us have had the unfortunate opportunity to visit with friends and neighbors that just don’t understand what we do in early childhood education.
📢 AECA is committed to educating our fellow Arkansans on the importance of ECE to children, families, and our communities. We believe there are no better spokespersons than our members.
💙 We are continuing our advocacy efforts by sharing stories of inspiring educators all across the state. Today’s story is about Brittney Matthews. Here is the story that was submitted on our website to share with you all:
When faced with moving from a face-to-face therapy model, Brittney was able to continue her service delivery through the online / Zoom model. She worked to provide the parents with support as they were facing the trials of raising a family and working during a pandemic. Brittney’s students have continued to make progress and thrive. Now that they are back in a “normal” delivery system, Brittney continues to use lessons she learned during the COVID shutdown in ways that she interacts with both students and their families. Brittney deserves to be recognized for her resilience and dedication to her profession.
