I have been involved in education for more than 40 years, earning my elementary credential through the University of California at Berkeley, in 1973. From 1974 through 1981, I was a head teacher with the Berkeley Head Start Program. There I specialized in early childhood education and was awarded the Child Development Associate (CDA) credential. I have led local, regional and national workshops on a number of ECE topics. In 1981 I opened my own child care program in Berkeley. Five years later I moved a few blocks over, continuing my program in Oakland. After marring my lovely wife Patti, I relocated to Petaluma and opened Shining Star in 1996. I thank all of the families who have allowed me to play a part in their young children’s lives. It has been a wonderful career.
