When We Were Free to Be

This chapter describes how the author's Free to Be … You and Me opportunity arrived at the same time that the record and book were being conceived. In the spring of 1972, while teaching three-year-olds in a small private school in New York City and finishing coursework for a master's degree in child development, the author was thinking that her next career step would be to direct a preschool or day care program. Her goal was to help parents understand the importance of play and the complexity of learning that happens in the early childhood classroom. With this idea in mind, the author went into the personnel office at the Bank Street College of Education and changed her career trajectory forever.
