This October, as the nation celebrates Head Start Awareness Month, I can’t help but reflect on my own Head Start experience, which truly laid the foundation for my future success in grade school, high school, college and ultimately as a successful engineer.
From the beginning of the school year, I had a vision: 100% of my students would leave Room 8 kindergarten-ready. I believed that in order to see exponential growth in my class, it was of utmost importance to know my students and to have a relationship with each family.
In addition to the expert speakers, excellent learning sessions, and exciting special events, the Parent Conference offers a truly awesome setting: San Diego! Here are just some highlights of the scenery, culture and sunshine that San Diego offers.
I am proud to count myself among the 32 million children Head Start has served over the past 50 years, and we should all proudly stand up and renew our commitment to making sure all our nation’s children have hope for a brighter future.
