I have worked as an Early Head Start teacher since August 2017. I started working in August 2016 as a Part-time extended teacher in Jo Sheppard and was at that position for almost a year. Thanks to Mid-Florida, I was able to get FCCPC certified and was offered a full-time job as an Early Head Start teacher in Jo Sheppard as well. I have really enjoyed working with the children and their families. It is very rewarding to be able to help in the development of the children at this early stage and know that somehow you will make a difference in their lives.
Being at MFCS has been a great experience for me. I have worked with a lot of wonderful people over the years.
Since my youth I have had a desire to help others and feel that the Lord has used MFCS to help me do just that.
I find it very rewarding and fulfilling working with the clients and helping them. I love listening to their life stories and have learned so much from them. In the end, they are the ones that have helped me.
I feel the work I do every day makes a difference to the people in our community. The job and the work are interesting, challenging and rewarding; it's exciting to be part of Mid Florida Community Services, a company that fills a void in the community. I know when I go home that I truly did something meaningful and important.
My Head Start journey began in 2004 when I applied at the agency and was hired as a Teacher’s Assistant. I was still in college, married for two years, and a mom of a 1 year old little girl. I was excited about the opportunity to grow in my field of study. Two more little girls later, I continued to work for Head Start and attend college. With hard work and determination, I was able to graduate with my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Development and Education. Head Start played a big role in helping me finish my degree.
I feel humbled in being able to serve the children and the families that I work with. It has been a very rewarding experience in which I am thankful.
I’ve had the pleasure of driving for Trans Hernando for 15 years. It’s a job I can honestly say I love and enjoy. I love helping people and find my job very rewarding. It gives me a great feeling to know I can make a positive impact on someone’s life just by doing my job. I work with all amazing co-workers and have a great boss.
I have been with Mid Florida Community Services Head Start as a teacher for the past 10 years. It has been my privilege to work here; I feel that this agency operates with integrity and compassion. I have the best co-workers and supervisors and I believe they have brought out the best in me as well. I love all my children and I enjoy getting to know their families over the years. I treasure the many lasting friendships I have acquired through this place. Through the Grace of God , I hope to be here for many more years to come.
For nearly seven years, I have had the opportunity to be part of the MFCS’ Community Services Department team. Mid Florida Community Services not only allowed me to grow professionally, but personally. It has been a rewarding and fulfilling experience working with individuals, families, and community partners to support the agency's vision and mission.
I joined the Head Start Family in 1999 when I stopped by to ask about volunteering. I ended up applying to be a substitute and started working right away. I worked as a Teacher’s Assistant for a short time and then as a Teacher. I enjoyed my time in the classroom very much, but decided that working as a Family Advocate would be even more fulfilling. After spending seven years in the classroom, I changed my educational path to become a Family Advocate. I have enjoyed this role for the last 12 years and still find it to be a learning experience. I was also a Head Start parent and grandparent many years ago. I’m very grateful for the opportunities and encouragement that Head Start has provided for me and for my family.
I graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, worked as a Math teacher for one year until the opportunity to work for Head Start in Puerto Rico was presented to me. I started working for the Head Start program in Puerto Rico in 1999, where I had the blessing to work as a teacher until December, 2012 when my mom and I made the decision to move to Florida.
I became employed with Mid Florida Head Start in 2004. I have to thank Mrs. Pat Medico, Donna Mass and Judi Maloy for believing in me even with my language barrier and giving me the opportunity, encouragement and support all the time.
Both of my children had the blessing of participating in the program and every day I can see the impact their great and caring teachers made in their lives.
I have to say that working with Early Childhood children and their families has been the most beautiful experience. Thank you, Mid Florida Community Services for the opportunity and support to serve our program and families.
