Teachers and teacher assistants are the core units of a Head Start/ Early Start teaching team. Together with our family engagement specialists they work to ensure a holistic approach to a child’s learning and development.

Their day involves lesson planning, implementing those plans, and documenting the child’s progress. They work with a variety of early education techniques as well as ones in special education to enhance the classroom environment. The children look to them as their role models. They use multiple social emotional development techniques, strong classroom management, and positive reinforcement.
