EDUCATING EARLY CHILDHOOD PROFESSIONALS IN DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE PRACTICES AND RESPECTFUL INTERACTIONS WITH CHILDREN.

 

Ms. Rucker has more than 35 years experience in early care and education, having held multiple roles as early childhood consultant/technical assistant, teacher, director, education coordinator, trainer, mentor, and multi-site manager in a variety of educational settings including urban, suburban, for-profit, non-profit, government-sponsored, and a university lab school; in centers small and large, including start-ups and fix-ups.


Along the way, Ms. Rucker has led three child care centers to NAEYC accreditation; a national hallmark of quality in early childhood education.  She has presented at countless local & national professional development conferences and has been a consultant on multiple projects throughout the eastern corridor.  Karen also has considerable experience teaching CDA classes and early childhood credit-bearing coursework at several colleges and universities. 


This wealth of experience brings a unique perspective to her work with early childhood staff and administration.
