About the Author
Tran Nguyen Templeton is an assistant professor of early childhood studies at the University of North Texas. Tran studies how children construct their own identities through photography, play, and literacy practices; she also thinks and writes about how adults would better “see” children if they stopped to listen and look at what children do in and with the world. Tran has published her work in journals like Children’s Geographies, Harvard Educational Review, The New Educator, and Language Arts. Most importantly, her profile photo was taken by Tulasi Cormier-Marri (who was 3 years old at the time).
