Enola (she/her) joined ECCLA in January of 2022 as the Communications and Program Support Coordinator. She transitioned to this role after almost nine years as an early childhood teacher working with preschool-aged children. In 2013, she stumbled into a position as a teacher’s aide in California where she discovered a passion for social-emotional curriculum and nonprofit early learning programs. She has taught in Colorado Preschool Program, Head Start, and community-based non-profit programs. Her previous position was at Teaching Tree Early Learning in Fort Collins as an Early Childhood Teacher. During her time as a teacher, Enola experienced the benefits of coaching and peer-mentor relationships, and to pay that forward, she has been a mentor through the Early Childhood Council of Larimer County’s Expanding Possibilities in Early Childhood workforce development program, is a Teachstone CLASS Pre-K Observer, and has her Early Childhood Trainer credential through PDIS. Enola considers herself to be a proud and passionate advocate for early childhood education and is also the part-time executive director of the Colorado chapter of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Enola grew up in Colorado Springs and Southern California and struggles to not say “umm yeah no” and call people “dude” in professional settings. She currently resides in Fort Collins with two dogs, two snakes, a cat, and a human.
