I am the Family Service Worker at Elkhart Elementary for the Head Start Program. I have been with the Head Start program for 23 years, 18 of those year with Region 7. It is my responsibility to be a liaison between the parent, school, ISD personnel, and Head Start staff. I help build a positive relationship between parents and school district. I assist with Head Start families in finding comprehensive services that include: educating parents on various topics, community resources, monthly parent meeting/trainings, conduct home visits, helping set self-sufficient goals, implement Head Start performance standards, and encourage the families to make good healthy decisions for themselves and their families. Thank you for supporting our Head Start program at Elkhart Elementary!
