They Keep Us Running!

This week is National Student Employment Week and yesterday was National Library Workers Day.  The Earl Center, which is part curriculum resource library, employs over 20 student workers and 5 supervising public services assistants (called PSAs).  They are crucial in the running of the Earl Center and in keeping the Earl Center open and available during evenings and weekends.  They support Wheelock College community by connecting them to the resources they need – from finding cuisenaire rods for teaching math to teaching us how to 3D print, and by setting up the Earl Center for the various classes and events that are held there.   Let’s get to know a few of them!

I read a lot to satiate my curiosity…I want to do everything at once. That means piles of books randomly form (and topple) around my house.

A toy set of an emergency room at a hospital. The set is a box. There is a plastic figure of a doctor, wearing scrubs and a face mask, pulling a gurney. Off to the side is a toy ambulance.

This playmobil set is a great resource for all, especially educators and child life specialists, it is designed to allow children to grasps an understanding of medical environment and emergency tools.
