We are excited to welcome our new staff member, Elizabeth Miller! She is a new T.E.A.C.H. Counseling Specialist. You can find out more about our T.E.A.C.H. program here. Here is more info about Elizabeth, you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elizabeth earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Education, Early Childhood Education, and Sociology from Arkansas State University. She has spent the last 7 years working in the field of Early Childhood Education. Prior to this, she spent time working in banking where she developed her skills of communication and customer service. Of her years working in early childhood, five of them were spent working in Head Start. She started as an assistant teacher working her way to a lead teacher and then an education coach. This is where she found not only does she have a passion for educating and cultivating the minds of our young learners, but also the impact of helping other early childhood teachers to achieve best practices in their classrooms. She believes that early childhood educators are dealt with the extraordinary task of building the brains of our young learners and helping to set the foundation not only for the rest of their educational careers, but their life. She feels it an incredible honor to help teachers from across the state reach their educational goals through the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood Scholarship.
Elizabeth is married to her husband, Josh, and they have 2 children. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family. Her and her husband are very involved in the various activities and sports that their children participate in. She also serves various roles on her local PTO and is a former member of the Chamber of Commerce.
As a former education coach, I know how important it is for our early childhood educators to receive the education needed to create high-quality environments for our early learners. T.E.A.C.H. is bringing opportunities to our early childhood staff across Arkansas, that some may never have had the chance to access otherwise. Not only does this benefit the educator in their professional career, but ultimately it is making ripples of immediate and lifelong positive impacts to the children of Arkansas. I am humbled to be a small piece of the process.
