North Georgia Technical College is continuing to work to start its Early Childhood Care and Education program.
Working toward a goal of beginning the program this Spring, North Georgia Technical College has hired Judy Carter of Franklin County as the program director and instructor.
Carter has 30 years of experience in the K-12 arena, as well as having served as an adjunct instructor at the technical college level.
North Georgia Tech said that her experiences in both Stephens and Franklin counties as an elementary school teacher who has taught kindergarten through third grade and also served as a media specialist will serve her students well.
Carter said she has always wanted to teach at NorthGeorgiaTechnicalCollege and adds she is excited and passionate about the program and the possibilities for students in this area.
The school said that data it has collected indicates that there is a need for Early Childhood Care and Education program at North Georgia Tech, particularly in the Clarkesville and Currahee Campus areas.
Students interested in pursuing a technical certificate, diploma, or associate degree in Early Childhood Care and Education may begin taking classes this January.
Beginning in January, courses in the program offered include Intro to Early Childhood Education; Child Growth and Development; and Safety, Health, and Nutrition.
