OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe T.E.A.C.H. Scholarship  was a wonderful experience, and the scholarship removed the financial stress that comes with the expense of attending college. As a recipient of the T.E.A.C.H Scholarship it allowed me to focus more on the classes and earned me a place in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society! Thank you T.E.A.C.H!

T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® INDIANA Graduate-Deborah Gatchel

Gatchel pictureI want to express my sincere gratitude to you for making the T.E.A.C.H scholarship possible.  I recently graduated with honors from Saint Mary’s of-the-Woods College with a Bachelors Degree. My degree will help me in meeting the needs of the children that are enrolled in my all day preschool. It also shows parents that by enrolling their child in my facility that their child’s educational needs are being met by a qualified teacher.  My accomplishment of graduating from college is also a testimony to others that it is never too late to go after your dreams. The financial assistance you provided allowed me to concentrate more of my time on my studies.  As a result, I received the Future Outstanding Educator award from the Indiana Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.  I was also a recipient of the Kappa Gamma Pi St. Catherine Medal. Thank you T.E.A.C.H Early Childhood® INDIANA for your generosity and support!

Family Child Care Home Professional

When I started out my Family Child Care Home, people were talking a lot about quality child care.  I asked myself, what is quality child care?  By obtaining a scholarship through T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® INDIANA project at the Indiana Association for the Education of Young Children and college classes, I learned what quality care and education is and how to implement it.  I feel with the education I’ve gotten, I can help children be more productive citizens in the future.

Child Care Center Professional

I was so ashamed because my teachers told me I would never make it through math, much less college. This is a prime example of what words can do and the effect they can have and that is why I have a passion for the children in my care to succeed; the suffering gave me the passion. I was the first person in my family to go to college and it is my passion to help others do the same.  Thanks to the Indiana Association for the Education of Young Children and the continuous commitment to support quality early care and education for all children and the professionals teaching them.
