What has been most rewarding about your career in early education so far?

The most rewarding aspect of my career in early education has been through the relationships created over the years. I have had the opportunity to work with so many amazing people, who have taught me such a great deal. These individuals, through their guidance and sharing, have helped make me a better man. The opportunity to pass this information on to others and implement lessons learned with my own children and children I mentor has also been extremely rewarding.

If you could give advice to someone who is new in the  administrative role, what would it be?

The early education organizations I have worked for or with have a similar mission. This mission revolves around strengthening families and children to promote optimal child development and family well-being in hopes of a brighter future. My advice is don’t forget the vision and the mission you had when you started your ascent to the position you now hold. Often times it is easy to get caught up in details that derail us from accomplishing our mission and goals.
