Head Start Stories

From my experience as a Head Start parent, I bring empathy to my role within the agency.

When I found out that I will now be trained as a Head Start teacher, I was overjoyed!

Head Start gave us (my husband and I) both the initial tools we needed to become good students and successful professionals.

Head Start gave me the chance to advance within our agency, which in turn made me become a more confident, dedicated person.

What a waste of human potential it would have been if the Head Start professionals hadn't searched for Mrs. M's subtle strengths, gradually nurtured her self-confidence, and helped to educate all three of her children!
