From being a consultant to the National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance responsible for designing, implementing and evaluating health and safety compliance curriculum for Head Start, pre-K and early education partnerships to supporting Head Start programs as an Implementation Planner for the nation’s largest super grantee; from conducting research on a multi-million dollar Head Start Monitoring contract to being appointed as the Deputy Director of the Washington State Department of Early Learning including responsibility for the oversight and integration of the Head Start State Collaboration Office; from being the Executive Director of the Washington State Association of Head Start and Early Childhood Economic Assistance Program (ECEAP, Washington State’s Pre-K) to researching Head Start Programs by assessing the quality of teacher-child relationships and the impact on children’s well-being, Dr. Payne gets it. She knows that Head Start programs offer even more than high quality early learning and development experiences, they also provide essential health and mental health services and deliver critical family support.
“I continue to be deeply impressed and moved by the mission and the people of Head Start, especially your education, outreach and support of children and their families—even and especially, virtually—throughout our pandemic. What has always brought me the most joy is ‘taking what we know and making it what we do’—and Head Start does that too. Empowering and equipping those who are making the biggest impact in children’s lives is not only my purpose, it’s my passion—and that is why working with you is such an incredible privilege.”

I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
