In an effort to make the General Assembly more accessible, some of us have been talking about coordinating a childcare center. I don't expect that to fully materialize for another few days, but in the meantime, I want to reach out to folks again to see if there's is any interest in contributing to this endeavor.
Or, if you're a parent, let me know if this would be of use to you. You can trust me; I'm a graduate student for elementary education and am a third grade teacher. The other person who has expressed interest, Kristin, also has a background in education and is currently a substitute teacher.
While we're waiting for more folks to join in, I'm going to try to obtain and bring all sort of relevant supplies to Liberty Plaza--picture books, watercolors, boardgames, etc. Any other suggestions?
Anyone doing outreach, please mention that such a project is in the works. I think it will encourage a lot more parents to come and get involved!
