On Saturday, March 26, 65 Early Childhood Educators were honored at the Early Literacy Buffet, an event hosted by the San Francisco Public Library (http://sfpl NULL.org/index NULL.php?pg=0000026601) and The San Francisco Early Literacy Network (http://sfearlyliteracynetwork NULL.blogspot NULL.com/). We celebrated the crucial role of early childhood educators in the lives of children 0-5 with a lovely breakfast, a showcase of early literacy resources, and mini-workshops presented by Janell Bolte and Betsy Keever Russakoff (Early Literacy Consultants), and Lynne Maes and Alli Spector (Raising A Reader and Jamestown Community Center).

As one educator remarked: “I wanted to take a moment to let you know what a positive experience Saturday’s workshop was for me. . . . [The] collaborative efforts allowed me to come away with a much greater awareness and understanding of early literacy resources in San Francisco, and gave me a renewed enthusiasm to pursue ways in which our center can benefit from these services.” (http://www NULL.rarbayarea NULL.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Big-bigger-biggest NULL.jpg)
It was our pleasure to honor and nurture those people who make a difference in the lives of children each and every day.
