On April 22nd, Rebecca Kantor, Dean of the CU Denver School of Education and Human Development, passed away following a battle with a long-term illness. We had the honor of partnering with Dean Kantor through our work on the Buell Early Childhood Leadership Program where she provided guidance and perspective, always centered on what was best for young children. Her experience and knowledge supported all of us as we strived to make the program and all of our work better. She was a true champion for the field of early childhood education, and her legacy will continue for years to come. Our thoughts are with her family and the CU Denver community.
