Mental Health & Disabilities Manager
I began working for Head Start in August of 2000 as a classroom teacher and I have been the Mental Health and Disabilities Manager for Alta Head Start since August of 2015. I hold a Bachelor’s of Science in Education with a major in Early Childhood Education and an Associate’s on Applied Science majoring in Prekindergarten. My job is to ensure compliance with the Head Start Performance Standards and recognized best practices in the fields of Special Education, Early Childhood Mental Health and Early Childhood Education. I provide guidance and support to children, families and staff regarding the suspicion of a developmental delay and/or expressions of challenging behaviors in children. I have made it my life’s work to provide for young children and their families what is needed for every child to be the best that they can be!
