When you think of New Orleans in June, you might imagine jazz saxophones being played on the street corners and great seafood soaked in butter. In early June, 2015, another kind of rich experience will fill the air of The Big Easy – the voices and experiences of early childhood education professionals from across the country.
The NAEYC* 2015 National Institute for Early Childhood Professional Development will gather together the most cutting-edge, creative thinkers in the field of early childhood education, and TRI is proud to be providing six of those voices.

"Not only do the parents view me as more of a professional, but I view myself as more of one as well." Elli's Preschool & Daycare

I have been employed as a student worker with TRI at Western Oregon University for the past six months. My job here has given me the chance to write some of the blog posts for the website. Recently, I was asked to write something about what it's like to be a student worker here, and to ask some of the other TRI student workers about their experience.
