To celebrate the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in May, the NAEYC Asian Interest Forum (AIF) would like to pay tribute to Asian American early childhood educators and educators who have been helping Asian American children and families thrive in the United States by sharing their teacher profiles. We are also putting together an Asian American Pacific Islander Early Childhood Education resource page for educators to access. We can't do this alone and we need your help! If you have a relevant resource you would like to include in the AIF resource page, please let us know through the NAEYC AIF HELLO page.
We wish to acknowledge the following ECE colleagues for their timely and valued contributions to the Preventing Xenophobia in ECE COVID-19 resource, Dr. Jerlean Daniel, Dr. Yolanda Garcia, Dr. Cary Larson-McKay and Dr. Yafen Lo. We also want to send a heartfelt thank you to all of the volunteers who spent countless hours translating the social story into different languages.
For all NAEYC members and staff, we want to thank you for your continued support of AIF's mission.
