I recently received an award from the National Association for Professional Women and I am so proud I wanted to share it with you. It is the VIP Woman of the Year Circle for 2015-2016. It is for excellence, leadership and commitment to my profession, while encouraging the achievement of Professional Women.
NAPW is the largest, most-recognized, exclusive organization of professional women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession. I joined because I believe in women supporting and encouraging women. I also joined because it has been an opportunity for me to follow my belief that we never stop learning and growing no matter what our age.
I have been retired from teaching for 13 years, but have never lost interest in education. I will continue to promote a greater need for Early Childhood Education. This award gives me more incentive to do so.
