Men from China attending national conference

One of the great experiences of attending a national conference like the National Association for the Education of Young Chlidren (NAEYC) is meeting new people. And especially guys from other parts of the world. One of the men in the photo is a Kindergarten teacher who works outside Beijing, China. It's amazing to think that this guy is such an amazing pioneer and challenging the stereotypes about men.

Men & women organize and watch "Expect Male Involvement"

by Tom Coakley - USA
We showed the Expect Male Involvement video at Housatonic during the Week of the Young Child sponsored by the ECE Program at the college and the Fairfield County (CT) AEYC. About 50 people showed up, which was a smaller number than events held during that week in the last couple of years, but decent. There were 18 men in attendance which I thought was a huge success - virtually all of them were childcare workers or ECE students. The open discussion after the showing of the video was lively but supportive.
