Dear 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.
In August, I will assume the position of Chief Executive Officer for LAUP, a California-based non-profit focused on children from birth to age eight and their parents. As CEO, I’ll work to help LAUP move toward sustainability, innovation and national relevance. This exciting opportunity will also allow me to live closer to family members for the first time in many years.
Parents as Teachers is a remarkable organization with the most dedicated, passionate and innovative staff that I have ever worked with. PAT has risen to national importance because of the remarkable leadership of so many who work every day to fulfill our mission in communities across the country. My expectation is Parents as Teachers will continue to grow in its national impact, as the organization moves from roots based solely in education to being a central component of America’s health care system.
I can assure you that in my new position, I will do all I can to expand PAT’s footprint throughout California. I want to 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
IT IS WITH DEEP SYMPATHY
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.
