Rosalie Fernandez

My name is Rosalie Fernandez. I am the Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment, and Attendance (ERSEA) specialist for the Community Action Partnership of Kern San Joaquin County Early Head Start. I am a Head Start child. I attended the San Joaquin County Head Start Migrant preschool program at LAC in Stockton, CA from 1983–1985. My parents were both seasonal cannery workers at that time. My fondest memory I have of my time in Head Start is playing in the dramatic play area. I remember there were so many things that we had in my home that my teacher brought them to my class so that we could play with them. I felt like such a "big girl" playing house with the other children in my class. I also remember circle time in the morning. We would sing a "Good Morning" song every morning. I am privileged to be part of a Head Start organization as an adult—an agency that changes lives, improves our community, and is dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
