Kindergarten Student Visits His Former Head Start Class

posted 2/6/18 -- Early education teachers get used to teaching their children, then watching them graduate and move along to kindergarten. However, once in a while, a young scholar comes back to visit his teachers and shows them how much he has learned and developed under their care.

In January the staff at Lorain County Community Action Agency (LCCAA) Wellington Head Start was surprised by alumnus visit from Parker.

“He is now in Kindergarten and came back to show his teachers his talents,” said Deanna Gregg, administrator of the site. “We cried.”

Gregg said Parker started out shy in Head Start but had great attendance. The confidence he built is now helping him succeed in Kindergarten. Parker returned to thank his old teachers by reading a book to their current class.

“It was wonderful to see his success,” Gregg added. “This is why we do what we do. To build kids into successful people at every stage of their lives.”

In other words, LCCAA Head Start Works.
