Read more about Pre-K, early intervention, education preparedness programs and discover what I have known, believed and advocated for a long time now:

‘Early’ is not early enough!

We must intervene and educate earlier than at age 4 to increase academic readiness for children considered ‘at risk’ to combat and eliminate achievement gaps in education. Try to start from birth, and better still-prenatal efforts to improve parenting capacity to support early learning and comprehensive growth and development of youngsters.

I believe that we have limited choices for strategizing solutions to this pervasive problem for education professionals and the negatively impacted lives of children and families’. Ultimately, the problems impact society, and thus every one of us. Without focusing on historical references, for today and tomorrow, the reasonable takeaway to this informs us that……  it’s about opportunity and access to learning! Create it!

An education and counseling professional, I focus my expertise on diversity, inclusion and family engagement/empowerment Of particular importance is the partnership between parents and the community schools that serve their children. Highlighting strategies, tips and evidence-based best practices for family engagement, my aim is to alter mindsets, broaden perspectives, foster empathy, and build capacity. Offering 'food for thought' and inviting discussion, I also tell truths rarely explored. A holistic culturally-responsive approach to teaching, learning and engaging others begins with respect. I promote respect and fully integrating curricular diversity in formal learning settings! Collaboration with families is necessary, because parents hold the master key that unlocks doors to child health and wellness, academic achievement, and believe it or not, teacher excellence and stronger school communities.
