The Steering Committee of MenTeach-New England this weekend decided to give Dr. Ed Klugman our annual Steve Shuman Award in Support of Men in Early Education.

Ed has been in early education field for over 60 years and has been everything from a teacher to a father. He is best known for his work on Play ( and these days inter-generational play)and as a professor at Wheelock College. We will be giving this award at the MassAEYC Reception Friday, April 19 at the Westford Regency, Westford, MA.

More details later.

There’s still time to nominate the Emerging Professional Male Teacher of young children. I will soon send out a nomination form for the Emerging Professional Male teacher of young children. Please look for a male teacher who is showing leadership, initiative and creativity.
