ABOUT THE CIRCLE TIME PROJECT
Latisha Cook, Founder and Workshop Facilitator
Over the past couple of years, preschool expansion programs have gained a lot of attention throughout the United States. Unfortunately, the quality of instruction these programs offer has not garnered the same amount of attention. We believe that every child deserves access to early childhood education. But, we also believe that this access should include high-quality instruction. This can only happen with a well trained, well-equipped teaching staff.
Latisha Cook is the founder of The Circle Time Project. She has been an early childhood educator for the past 18 years. She began her career as a teacher's assistant and quickly moved through the ranks in her field. Latisha has taught in New York City’s top independent private schools, including The Washington Market School. There she spent several years as a classroom teacher. Latisha is also currently the director of a Brooklyn based Independent Private School.
Latisha has attained her Undergraduate Degree and Masters Degree in early childhood general education (Birth-Grade 2). She is a New York State Certified Teacher and a Certified Forest Kindergarten Teacher. Latisha has also received a certificate in Family Engagement from Harvard's Graduate School of Education.
Latisha created the Circle Time Project to ensure that teachers have the skills they need to give children a solid educational foundation.
