Our programs are fortunate to have some teachers who are adept at mentoring other teachers. It is especially helpful to our Education Coordinator because she can only be in one location at a time and we might have three new teachers who are overwhelmed at the requirements of Head Start teaching. These three ladies have much experience that they are willing to share and are three of the reasons for our excellence!Shirley Harrell has been with Central Texas 4C over 17 years and is particularly good at helping teachers involve parents in projects with their children.
