Nominee Evaluators Needed!
Currently we are seeking Nominee Evaluators to conduct classroom visits between February and April to assess nominees who educate and care for children ages birth to five years. Nominee evaluators must have some knowledge of early childhood education, in either the classroom or as an administrator of an Early Childhood Education Program. Former preschool teachers, administrators, first grade teachers, speech therapists, or counselors who have worked with children birth to six-years-old are encouraged to volunteer. Evaluators use a C.L.A.S.S. based scoring form with criteria such as teacher sensitivity, language support, positive climate, and behavior guidance.
