9780807756638: The New Early Childhood Professional: A Step-by-Step Guide to Overcoming Goliath (Early Childhood Education)

For today's early childhood educator, change is a non-negotiable reality. While the size, force, and direction of change can often seem overwhelming, this book shows the way toward overcoming these gigantic odds or ''Goliaths.'' The New Early Childhood Professional recounts some of the heroic stories and strategic approaches used by early childhood educators who participated in the CAYL Institute Fellowship programs. The authors share a specific framework with concrete steps to help educators become positive change makers in the field of early care and education. Complete with resources, tools, and questions for reflection, this handbook takes readers through four progressive paths toward becoming an architect of change. Analysis: When confronting seemingly insurmountable situations, instead of being overwhelmed, think and reflect about the situation and discover hidden insights. Advance: Better understand the nature of problems while also strengthening your vision and identity through planning and preparation. Act: Begin with everyday challenges and use what you know from every situation, in every interaction with a child, parent, peer, or administrator. Accelerate: Focus on what you want to change, gather allies, document, and communicate.

Review:

A talented leader is required to pull all the building blocks of quality together into a harmonious community. For this reason, The New Early Childhood Professional is a vital resource for both new and experienced early childhood leaders.... Readers, be prepared to be jolted out of your comfort zone. This book will challenge, inform, provoke, and inspire you. --From the Foreword by Roger and Bonnie Neugebauer, publishers of Exchange Magazine

"In this book, Washington, Gadson, and Amel lay out a proven, intentional, strategic, and clear approach to effect change collectively and individually. A definite must-read!" --Marta T. Rosa, Senior Executive Director, Department of Government & External Affairs, and Community Impact/Chief Diversity Officer

"At a pivotal moment in early childhood education, the authors give us the tools to become agents of change on behalf of young children. This highly readable discussion leaves us with no more excuses." --Jacqueline Jones, executive director of the Foundation for Child Development in New York
