Support, Survive & Thrive: RPS 205 Staff Present at International Conference

Nichole Giovanni and colleagues at conference

Last month I had the opportunity to speak at the Parents as Teachers International Conference in Denver, Colorado. A group of RPS 205 parent educators – Gina Beaver, Rea Jones and Kathy Comella – joined me to attest to the work and the challenges of being a home visitor. We also shared what leadership looks like in the RPS 205 Prevention Initiative Program, which supports families and children in becoming kindergarten ready.

The experience gave a new perspective on the connection we have as a team, how we support each other through teamwork, how we strive to improve and thrive through challenges, and how leadership supports the team through every step of the journey.

This was a humbling experience. I appreciate the opportunity to share the great work my team has done over the last two years during the pandemic and how we continue to support families and each other.
