Louis Stokes Head Start Center

Site Administrator: Thelma Bizzell

What is your educational background?
I have a Master Degree in Education (Curriculum Instruction) and I majored in Early Childhood Education at Cleveland State University.

What is your favorite thing about what you do?
Building a trusting relationship with children, families and staff. I also enjoy watching the growth and development take place for all parties.

What inspires you to do your job?
The positive feedback I receive from children (verbal responses, smiles and hugs) and parents. I have had parents tell me how they feel about their children’s growth and development as well as what I have done to make them feel important. I enjoy just having the opportunity to share information and see positive results.
