Anita Morgan, M.Ed. – Retired Program Director
At the heart of Anita’s professional journey as an early educator lie two core life events. Coiled at the center is her own rich and indulged early childhood. Her days were filled with long hours of make-believe play adventures that used every nook and cranny of her bedroom, porch, and yard. Kentucky downpours provided large puddles, temporary creeks, and fat worms which were the focus of many scientific observations and experiments. Being the 4th of five daughters in her family also gave her many opportunities to play with and learn from her older siblings.
The second core event is that she has been blessed with a supportive community which has helped her raise her family through all its many stages. She says, “These experiences inform and guide my image of the child and the family as I go about my daily work as an early childhood educator and director”. On her 40-year plus professional journey, she has earned a master’s degree in Child Development and Family Studies and worked as a child life therapist, child mental health therapist, toddler and preschool teacher, parent co-op facilitator, and early education instructor for adults.
