Outhwaite Head Start Center

Site Administrator: Rukayatu Saka

What is your educational background?

I hold a Bachelor in Business Administration from Central University Ghana. A Masters Degree in Service Management from the University of Buckingham United Kingdom and I am currently working towards a second Master in Early Childhood from Cleveland State University.

What is your favorite thing about what you do?

Building relationships, creating a positive impact, sharing memories and laughing together with my students and families.

What inspires you to do your job?

Working with young children is not only my passion, but I find joy in what I do. After over 10 years of working in early education classrooms, I still find the uniqueness of each child. I aid them in forming a love of learning. I nurture young minds and hearts through patience and compassion in my everyday interactions with each child.
