DOUBLE TAB TO ZOOM ON PHONE OR TABLET Jocelyn (Barbarin) Myres 1951–2001 Jocelyn’s leadership in the early childhood field inspired us on many levels. We first met her as a colleague doing community college field instruc- tion in child care programs across the Seattle area. Wanting to be more closely involved with the lives of children, she took a job as a child care director, and a few years after that, returned to the classroom as a pre- school teacher. Jocelyn’s unusual career path inspired Deb to return to work directly with children herself. Jocelyn led by example. Her classroom is prominently featured in our video, Children at the Center: Reflective Teachers at Work. Through this window into her thoughts and actions, Jocelyn has inspired early child- hood educators across the United States and Canada. Her untimely death is a tremendous loss to the Seattle early childhood community. Her memory and contributions live on as a powerful reminder for what is possible in our work with children and families. COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
