Allen Early Childhood Education Northwest Indian College, WA

Many kids on the rez grow up being taught by nonNatives. They don’t have a role model to show them their culture and teach them about their tribe and why these things are important. So a lot of those kids end up in trouble. I know, I was one of them. Now I want to get my degree so I can work with kids and make them excited to stay in school.
