#GaNeedsChildCare Story Bank - Teachers

Your stories as an early childhood educator are critical to increasing investment in our child care system. We’ll share your experiences with changemakers and stakeholders to strengthen our advocacy efforts as we work to improve outcomes for young children and families in our state.

This platform makes it easy for you to record your story via video or audio (your choice). The platform will ask you four quick questions that you will respond to separately. The questions are:

1) Introduce yourself, including (if you feel comfortable) what city you live in, what ages you teach, how long have you been in the profession, etc. We recommend not sharing where you work to support your privacy.
2) What do you love about being an early childhood educator?
3) What challenges have you faced during your career as an early childhood educator? What factors impact teacher recruitment and retention?
4) What is one thing you would like elected officials to know about the need for greater investment in child care?

You respond by recording short (max 2-3 minutes per question) video or audio clips directly from this device. This will take about 20 minutes to complete. You can't skip any questions but feel free to keep it short! You can share as much or as little as they wish. If you don't like your response, you can re-record as many times as you would like. After clicking "submit," you'll be taken to a separate page to complete a consent form.

*The $10 Amazon gift card will be sent via the email you provide at the end of the form within a week of your submission. Limit one gift card per person after validation of completion at our discretion.
