Our St Vincent de Paul Head Start Arlington Site is neatly situated on the corner of W Rogers Ave and Park Heights Ave. The site is collocated with Arlington Elementary and Middle School, on Baltimore City School grounds.
Arlington enjoys a strong relationship with the Arlington Judy Center. Together they collaborate on recruitment activities and work to ensure that families in the catchment area have access to high-quality preschool experiences. From this partnership, the Head Start Teachers and children have enjoyed access to Arlington Elementary/Middle STEM Fairs, Arts Immersion programming, and joint professional development and training experiences.
Arlington Elementary and our Head Start program are part of a $28 million dollar renovation and modernization project. The new Arlington Elementary will include a state of the art Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) that will function independently and be operated by our Head Start program. Construction is slated to begin Summer of 2018, and we expect to be in our new home in the ECDC by Fall of 2019.
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.
Tiffany Andrews is a classroom teacher at our Head Start Arlington site. Unlike most of our teachers, Tiffany didn’t always dream of a career in teaching. She wanted to grow up to be a lawyer. However, she discovered a love for teaching while volunteering when her daughters were enrolled in Head Start.
“I wanted to be able to help children grow and blossom while on their educational journey. I like seeing that spark in a child’s eye when they are able to grasp a skill and understand what I am teaching. There is no better reward than helping a student finally reach clarity.”
Some of Tiffany favorite childhood memories are of her mother reading the classic children’s book, The Snowy Day. to her. Written in 1962, by Ezra Jack Keats, it is the first picture book for young children to portray realistic, multi-cultural urban characters which was significant to Tiffany
Today, as a teacher, Tiffany also uses The Snowy Day to help teach pattern, sequence and making predictions to students.
We’re lucky Tiffany chose teaching over a career in law. Her contagious kindness makes the site feel a little more like home and confirms for children, and adults alike, that they are welcome at Arlington. She’s a real team player with big energy and a big heart.
