He has 15 years of experience working with children in various capacities.
Join early childhood educators, parents, and activists as we deepen our understanding of anti-bias philosophy and practice in the early years on a day filled with community-building and professional development.

We are excited to share CCR&R-Multnomah County will be partnering with Threads of Justice to ensure Spanish interpretation is available for at least one workshop in each time block. They are also available in the weeks before the conference to support any trainer who would like to have Spanish interpretation offered at their training, but who is unfamiliar or uncomfortable teaching through an interpreter. (At this time the plan is that classes with interpretation will be taught in English with Spanish interpreter and participant interpretation headsets provided.)
