Ready At Five Announces New Staff Roles

During the last 6 months I've had the great pleasure of working with a talented and dedicated group of individuals who have each played a critical role during Ready At Five's leadership transition. As I guide our remaining preparation to welcome Keri Hyde as our new Executive Director, I would like to announce a restructuring of existing staff titles to better serve both the community and their professional aspirations. This change will also better delineate for external stakeholders the roles in which each one of these professionals has been serving so effectively. I am proud to have worked with these women, and am grateful to have met so many Marylanders dedicated to improving the practice and quality of early childhood education in this wonderful state. Onward! 
-Susan Foulds, Interim Executive Director
