I was the Director of Children’s Services for Kelseyville USD for 9 years.  I was Site Supervisor of the Clear Lake Campus Child Care Center for 3 years.  I have been the Executive Director of The Learning House, a private state-funded center in Clearlake serving income eligible children ages 0-6 since 1999.

Why Early Childhood Education is a great career option:

When you work with young children you have the opportunity to make a lasting difference for the lifetime of that child and their family.  It is one of the most emotionally rewarding careers you could choose.


Get your core classes and then get a job in the field while you continue your studies.  Take every ECE class that you can take, you can use every one of them.
