2016 ECE of the Year Award

2016 Early Childhood Educator of the Year Award Winner

CONGRATULATIONS to our winner, Blairetta Curry from Impact Learning Center in Florida!

Blairetta Curry lives in Jacksonville FL and is a young, vibrant, success-driven daycare teacher. Blairetta has shown a deep passion for children ever since she was a child. In 2009, Blairetta graduated from Wolfson High School and was also a part of the National Junior Honor Society.

Blairetta is a proud mother of two and has been developing her craft for education through her own experiences in motherhood and her time as a teacher. Though relatively new to the field of education, she has shown integrity, passion, energy, and deep enthusiasm about her work. She believes in her heart that any child and every child can be educated and successful.

Blairetta has shown diversity in her teaching styles and methods as she has had the opportunity to work with children of many different backgrounds. Through her experiences and willingness to learn, she has overcome obstacles in teaching that are difficult for most.

In 2016 Blairetta received a director’s license with which she can start her own learning center. Thankful for her recent win of the ECE of the Year award, Blairetta is more motivated than ever to continue pursuing her goal of being the best teacher she can be.

Join us in congratulating Blairetta for being an inspiring educator!
