Hi! I’m Jackie Mader, a staff writer and the multimedia editor at The Hechinger Report.

Every two weeks I dive into research and news in the early childhood world to bring you more insight into how young children learn, what’s working in early ed classrooms and how national and local policies are impacting the littlest learners. We know the first few years of life are incredibly important and I look forward to exploring this fascinating time with you.
