Zephyrhills Florida

Bio: Hello! My name is Patrice Woods. I live in Zephyrhills, Florida which is located about 40 miles east of Tampa. I am a proud mother of two, who are both excelling in school and have been recognized for their academic excellence. Currently, I work for Hillsborough County Head Start/Early Head Start as a General Manager for the Child Outcomes section of the program. My responsibilities at work include monitoring the activities of Education Managers and for the planning service area systems and procedures for 163 Head Start teachers and 1197 children. Three years ago, I applied for an Innovation Grant through the Office of Head Start and received $600,000 to create sustainable gardens on the playground to enhance math and science for preschool children. This was a great accomplishment for me and my team. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Home Economics with the concentration in Child Development from Tennessee State University in Nashville Tennessee. I have over 17 years of experience in the Early Childhood field, ten (10) of those years as a classroom teacher. My dedication to excellence and to constantly strengthening and evaluating the quality of the learning opportunities provided to disadvantaged children has been the driven force for me to obtain a higher degree. I look forward in continuing my professional growth and development and feel that my decision to enroll in school will help me reach the next level in my career.
