ScottHippert 300Dear Parents as Teachers Family,

It is with mixed emotions that I announce my departure as President and CEO of Parents as Teachers. Providing leadership to this incredible organization for the past several years has been the honor of my professional life. Parents as Teachers truly is a “movement” that is having a positive impact in the lives of young children and their parents all over the world. We have come so far together as we have focused on the quality of our model and the quality of implementation and service delivery.

In August, I will assume the position of Chief Executive Officer for LAUP (Los Angeles Universal Preschool), a Los Angeles-based organization with a sharp focus on high quality early care and education for young children from birth to age five and engagement of their parents. The emphasis on quality that we have promoted at Parents as Teachers grounds me with a solid foundation to support the work of LAUP. As CEO, I will work to help LAUP move toward improved sustainability, innovation and national impact. This exciting opportunity will also allow me to live closer to family members for the first time in many years.

Parents as Teachers has the most dedicated, passionate and innovative staff that I have ever worked with. PAT has risen to a significant position in the early childhood field because of the remarkable leadership of so many who work every day to fulfill our mission in communities across the U.S. and several other nations. In the world of home visiting, I truly believe Parents as Teachers is the most universally impactful model and can therefore have the greatest impact on the most families. My expectation is that Parents as Teachers will continue to increase its impact as we grow from roots grounded mostly in education to being a central component of America’s health care system.

Once on the ground in California, I will do all I can to continue promoting and supporting this impactful organization and model, because I honestly believe in it – and in you. I want to again emphasize that Parents as Teachers has some of the most respected and experienced staff and leadership in the national home visiting field. Our strong leaders will continue the wonderful path that we have been on together.

President/CEO, Parents as Teachers



Dear Friends of Parents as Teachers,

Each of us at the Parents as Teachers National Center express our deep sadness following the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida. The children of America, whether they be infants or young adults, deserve our nurturing and protection. Parents as Teachers stands firm with the Orlando community, in particular the LGBTQ community, to offer our caring support, and to do all we can to eradicate these horrors from happening again. We invite the entire Parents as Teachers family to join us in the full embrace of love and dignity for every human being, to deeply reflect upon the world we hope to hand to our children, and the actions we as responsible citizens can take to protect them and their futures.
