Laurie Black, Director of Head Start
I have been in education for 30 years. I spent 11 years
teaching and 19 years as an administrator. I have worked as a principal in
charter and district schools and now as the Director of the Murphy Head Start
Child Development Center.
I enjoy my experience with Head Start. It is truly education
at its best. Parents are included in decision making at every level, the home,
the classroom, and at the District and Region level. We have parent trainings,
parent meetings, parent volunteers, and our parent policy committee. I have
enjoyed these interactions with the families.
The Head Start staff is dedicated to the children and their
inquisitive young minds. They plan carefully and deliberately to provide rich
experiences to prepare the children for kindergarten and beyond.
I am proud to be the Director of Murphy Head Start Child
Development Center and a member of the Murphy School District.
