Dear GSC Family,

We have recently learned of an insensitive and offensive media post from one of our employees that has been circulating. First and foremost, we, as your parent-led Board of Directors, wanted to reach out to make sure you understand that this ideology is completely contrary to everything Good Shepherd Center stands for and everything it will continue to stand for going forward.

We are among those of you who had an immediate guttural reaction to the sentiment and to the intolerant nature of the post and follow up comments. We are grateful to Rebecca and staff for having the foresight to bring us into the decision making process. Everyone at GSC is family and we, as your board and staff, have taken action to keep our family together and do what is best for our center. This employee has been terminated.

We could not be prouder of our staff who have stood up for each other and already come to us openly with their concerns.

Congratulations to Barbara Goodwin for her continued excellence in Early Childhood Education.

Today’s Friday Spotlight goes to Barbara Goodwin. Barbara first received her CDA® during July of 1989 and has been renewing it ever since. She has been a lead teacher at a child care center in Iowa for 27 years and is very proud of the impact her CDA® Credential has had in her career. “I feel that having my CDA® holds me to a higher standard in my classroom and with my students. I proudly display my certificate in my classroom for all to see. There is no greater joy in the world than working with young children and guiding their young lives,” she explains. Recently, it was Barbara’s first time renewing her CDA® Credential online and she shared that the process went smoothly thanks partially to the help and support of the CDA® community on Facebook. #CDAcouncil #earlyed
