This week we’re focusing on the early education workforce.

And today, we’re throwing back to 2011 when we released this video about early educator Doreen Anzalone.

She graduated from Everett High School in 1978.

She began working in early education and care in 1986.

And she got a scholarship and went to college in 2002.

Hers is a story of passion and persistence.

Take a look.
