Summer 2012: Early Head Start: Juanita Morales, Center Director

My name is Juanita Morales. I am the Health Services Manager for Through the Looking Glass Early Head Start and have recently taken on the position of Center Director. I have been with TLG for a few years while I have had previous experience as a Health and Nutrition coordinator for Child Start Head Start in Napa.

I was a Medical Assistant before I became a teacher’s aide in an ESL classroom. I enjoyed teaching so much I went back to school and received a teaching credential and taught multiple subjects in Kindergarten and 7th grade while living in the central valley. I moved to the Bay area a few years ago and decided I could combine my experience in health and education and was fortunate enough to become involved with Head Start. My experience working in the classroom also provided me with the knowledge I needed to support educational objectives.

I am very excited at taking on new challenges as the Center Director and feel grateful for the opportunity to serve and support children and families at Through the Looking Glass.
