Congratulations to Rosa Parks Early Childhood Education Center NEW teacher Ericka VanDeventer!

“She started as a teacher assistant here at Rosa ECEC back in 2008,” said Principal Alycia Pennington. “She began working on her Early Childhood teaching degree a few years ago at OU-Tulsa, utilizing GKFF grant money, while still working for us as a teaching assistant.  She graduated Tuesday night, May 9.  She was given the Best Intern award at last night’s ceremony.  She did her interning here with us this spring and we will be hiring her into a position at the end of May.  She is the BEST of the BEST!  She is worth celebrating!”
