"But at the end of the day, there were lots of hugs and lots of glitter."
I have my masters in Social Work with Children and Families. When I was in graduate school I was working with inner city foster kids, with kids in group homes and with young adults in homeless shelters. I wanted to know what it was that could keep kids and families from getting into these situations in the first place. Every research project I did said that the way to make community impacts is through quality Early Childhood Education....so now this is what I do to try to save the world!
