Professional and personal growth takes time and the road isn't always smooth, but it is a learning-filled adventure

Holly Elissa Bruno, Janet Gonzalez-Mena, Luis Antonio Hernandez, and Debra Ren-Etta Sullivan are accomplished professionals and respected leaders in the early childhood field. After a decade of speaking together at national professional development conferences, twelve of their most important topics are now available as essays. Each chapter presents dialog among the authors about a particular topic—from power imbalances to embracing technology in the classroom—and the lessons gleaned from facing and overcoming uncertainty and obstacles.

Merging each author's distinct voice, expertise, and life experiences with issues relevant to your daily work with children, their families, and your colleagues, this collection unveils the authors' personal and meaningful histories, insecurities, and insights. As you read about the bumps the authors have encountered throughout their careers, you will be encouraged and challenged to think more deeply and openly about your own practices and philosophies. You will gain a renewed sense of purpose as you help children reach their full potentials. And, you will discover—as the authors did—that every bump in the road is an invitation to grow and opportunity to learn.
