We have two Head Start programs sites on North Caroline Street -- 1415 and 1427. Both are located in the Oliver neighborhood in the heart of East Baltimore.
Our 1427 Caroline Street Head Start program is a partnership with Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church which was the first African American Catholic Church in the United States.
Note: St. Vincent de Paul Baltimore operates 42 Head Start classrooms at seven locations across Baltimore. For Teacher Appreciation Week we are highlighting staff and teachers at each location.
Marian Moody is a Baltimore native who has been teaching for 30 years. We’re lucky that she joined our Head Start teaching staff three years ago. Her passion and seemingly limitless energy and her dedication to the academic success of her students have earned her much love from many Head Start families.
Like many of our education staff, Marian always wanted to be a teacher.
“As a child I always envisioned myself teaching. I sincerely love working with the children and their families to encourage them to be and do their best.”
Her favorite children’s book is anything by Eric Carle. He’s best known as the writer and artist of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Melissa Parris is a family services coordinator. She ’s a native of Trinidad and Tobago but grew up in Baltimore. Melissa attended Western High School, Frostburg State University, and Texas Southern University - where she earned a bachelor of arts in social work.
Jennifer Mooring is an assistant teacher at our Head Start Caroline Street. Though she was born in Greenville, North Carolina, she was raised in Baltimore, Maryland.
As child Jennifer imagined a career in education. Later, as a parent involved in the school system, she knew it was the right career path for her. Today she teaches classes of 4 and 5 year-olds.
Jennifer has been in the classroom for 20 years - eight of those with St. Vincent de Paul Head Start. The children she teaches look forward to coming to school every day because she has a knack for making everything fun and interesting.
Cheryl Boykin is a family services coordinator at our Head Start program on Caroline Street. She has been in the field for 15 years - seven of those with St. Vincent de Paul Head Start.
While teachers are busy in the classroom, family service coordinators wear a lot of important hats, helping the children and their parents or caregivers. The process starts with recruiting and enrolling children and extends to finding community resources, to aiding families in developing goals, and to making sure that all children receive health services and then keep up with their healthcare management plans.
Looking back, a career in human services seems a natural to Cheryl, although it wasn’t always on her radar.
“As a teenager friends would talk to me about their problems. Looking back, I’ve always been a good listener and offered words of encouragement.”
Early on a colleague suggested a family services career to her, and Cheryl discovered it was a great fit.
Cheryl is known for her can-do approach and deep knowledge. She frequently helps co-workers navigate through the processes with their families.
