Welcome to the ECE Teacher Talk Blog! This blog was founded in the Fall of 2013 by faculty and staff in the Illinois State University Early Childhood Education program as a tool to stay connected with our ECE graduates. Its readership has since grown to include other faculty and staff from across departments on campus, current ECE teacher candidates, ECE graduates, cooperating teachers, university supervisors, and more! Our guest bloggers include voices from each of these domains, and our focus is on ECE. Read some past posts, meet our editors and bloggers, and learn something new to use in your daily practice with young children. We hope that this tool expands your thinking about the power of ECE for our youngest learners! Happy reading!
