Chaley Kirkpatrick Joins Early Childhood Policy Team at Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C.
I have always enjoyed working with children and have done so as a direct service provider for several years. I wanted to be involved with helping and serving children in other ways, outside the classroom. Having worked in a preschool for the past couple of years gave me a strong appreciation for the importance of a positive early childhood experience. This is what led me to pursue this particular policy area.
