On staff since 2008
and formalizing systems so that across all Head Start programs we have
common goals and a common approach to working with the families we serve
for the best possible outcomes.
FAVORITE PART OF THE JOB:
It goes beyond just a job. There's a huge potential here
in Queens because there's such an underserved, culturally diverse
community. I feel that I am contributing to improving the opportunities
for change, expansion, and enhancing the good work that was already
going on when I got here.
HOW THE CHILD CENTER HELPS TURN LIVES AROUND:
The mission of the agency--nurturing children
strengthening families--is my personal mission. For some children, we
become their second or even first family. That's an important role that
we play and one that we take very seriously. Every family, no matter how
dire their situation, comes with a set of strengths and we work to
build on them.
