A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
S.W. never imagined being a family childcare provider. Even as a small child, she knew she wanted to be a teacher, but she always believed she would be an art teacher, not an early childhood educator. Her aunt, who she idolized, had her doctorate in education and was a principal at a local school. S.W. started college with the intention of being like her aunt, but life got in the way, and she settled for an Associate Degree in Accounting. However, she promised herself that someday she would get her bachelor’s degree. She began operating a family childcare business to provide for her family and believed that after a year she would find a job in accounting and go back to college part time. What she didn’t know was she was going to find her life’s passion. S.W. had been operating her family childcare business for 20 years but ached to have her bachelor’s degree and teaching certificate. She heard about T.E.A.C.H Early Childhood® NEBRASKA and, after receiving the scholarship, enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Inclusive degree program at UNK and graduated in 2021 with her bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. She is now using Child Care WAGE$® NEBRASKA salary supplements to get her master’s degree and doctorate in early childhood education.
