My name is Johanna Vaczy and I have been working in the field of Early Childhood since 1982. I graduated from the University of Vermont in 1977 with a degree in Early Childhood Programs and Services (from the School of Home Economics!) In 2007 I earned a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood and Human Services Leadership; also from UVM. Positions I have held in the field of early childhood are: teacher, center director, consultant, and instructor. I currently am one of the STARS coordinators. I love living in Vermont; especially because of all the opportunities we Vermonters have spend time outdoors, and to be engaged with the natural world.
