Cora McNair, with a big smile and open arms, has given over 20 years of her heart and skill to early childhood education. She teaches at New St. Paul Head Start in Detroit, a region that faces a shortage of available child care services for families. But there is no shortage of dedication, passion, and creativity from Cora. Despite the challenges, she remains in her community as a teacher, trusted resource to parents and natural leader, serving as a mentor to other teachers at New St. Paul Head Start. Cora is committed to improving educational outcomes for children, supporting other early childhood educators, and building strong relationships with the families she serves.
