Vera Davis Woolfolk
Head Teacher

My experience in early childhood spans 59 years, working at home with my siblings, children of family and friends, public school and childcare centers. As a young child my maternal grandmother would observe me working with children and say, "She will be a teacher one day." Her prediction came to pass. My goal with each child is to "polish the apple", not calling them a fruit, but using it as an example of how I awaken their creativity and brains.

My name is Julie Bailey. I am a Teacher at LULAC Head Start for Infant and toddlers. I have worked in early childhood education for about 14 years. I started out as a home day provider. From there, I trained and pursued education to become an assistant teacher and now a teacher in the classroom. My role as a teacher is to assist the Head Teacher in establishing a safe, nurturing, and stimulating classroom environment; preparing and maintaining materials and supplies, and consulting on plans and curriculum activities. In my time off from work, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, family, and friends. I love and enjoy watching movies and going shopping.
