This is Laura Bitzer, the new Center Director at the Elaine Schreiber Child Development Center


Laura is a lifer in education, this being her 28th year. She's worked in both early and elementary education and prior to this was an assistant director at KinderCare. 


Laura started in March, giving her obstacles right off the jump! Although it was rough timing with the quarantine, there were also a few silver linings...

It's the little things like this that we know we have found the right captain of the ship. We want to salute her for the lifetime of passion she's shown for education and thank her for joining our team.


That's why she is our...
