Marjie Collins, Unit Coordinator, CDRC. I graduated from TTU with HDFS degree and have been employed at the CDRC since 1994. I have worked with children most of my adult life beginning in High School as a teacher's assistant in a Kindergarten classroom. Although I do not work in the classroom with children now, the CDRC has taught me so much about children and their ability to learn beginning at birth. It still amazes me to watch the transformation that occurs during the short time they are with us here at the center from infancy to kindergarten. Not only do the children grow and mature during their time with us, but also the student assistants who work with us from freshmen to graduation.
