Oversight Coordinator


We wish to announce that Lisa Guerrero will be focusing her new work with VAEYC as the oversight coordinator for the VT chapter of TEACH. Her new role will support this important state wide program which offers early educators a pathway to obtaining an Associate’s degree through cost sharing between TEACH, employers and students. This unique program is directly linked to growing a more highly qualified early childhood work force across VT!

Lisa will team up with Sonja Raymond, Interim Executive Director, to ensure that the Vermont TEACH program is a strong model representing the state at the National level. Sonja, a long standing board member and experienced program director, leads the Quality project (supporting programs as they seek national accreditation) and is active in the legislature with issues relating to the Child Care Financial Assistance program (CCFAP). Please welcome both Lisa and Sonja to the leadership team at VAEYC!
