Parent Spotlight – December 2020

Congratulations to Travis, our featured Parent Spotlight! The Parent Spotlights are for parents and caregivers who have demonstrated excellent leadership skills inside and outside of their child’s school. You can read more of Travis’ story below. Please congratulate him if you see him around!

How long have you been a Head Start parent?

This is my third year as a Head Start parent. I have three children, two are currently in the program. My oldest started Kindergarten this year from Head Start.

In what ways are you engaged at your child’s site?

I started by volunteering with the WATCH D.O.G.S. program. I am currently a Parent Teacher Assistant Substitute for Kentwood.

I am also on my third year of being a part of the Understanding Readiness Outcomes Committee as a Parent Representative for Kentwood. I help with other projects and attend events when I can.

What is your favorite Head Start moment?

My favorite moment would be when I first entered the classroom as a WATCH D.O.G. My son was so happy I was there. He had to tell all his classmates I was his dad. He did not want to share me at first but it has been great ever since.
