    My education background and experiences started in Oregon at a Migrant Head Start Program.  I grew within this company from an Assistant to Education Coordinator Assistant.  I worked for them 14 years.  I received my Infant/Toddler Child Development Associate certificate and my Preschool Child Development Associate certificate.  Then I received my Associate Degree in Education at Treasure Valley Community College.  Then I moved to Texas.  I worked as a Child Care Director for 2 years.  Then I decided to go back to school to receive my Bachelors Degree in Education at West Texas A & M University. Once I completed I started working at a public school teaching Special Education in a self-contain classroom for 9 years.
