     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.
