The Super Stars Leadership Academy is a six-month program including personal mentoring, two regional training sessions, a statewide convening, and networking with fellow Early Childhood professionals.
Mrs. Thomas will attend two regional forums and a Kentucky convening as she will further her education by learning to create the best learning environment for students, implement instructional strategies proven to increase school readiness, and engage parents.
"I am very excited to have been accepted into the KY Super Stars Leadership Academy," Thomas said. "I'm confident that the experience will enhance my current knowledge and skills as well as provide me with some new tools to create the best possible early childhood education program for the children and families of Edmonson County that we here at the Head Start center serve."
Thomas has been a part of Edmonson County Head Start for nearly 15 years.
She is one of the 118 educators and administrators across the state named to the program.
