Hello.  My name is Emily Aragon.  I am a program manager for multi-site home visiting programs throughout the state of New Mexico.  New Mexico is a very large state with lots of open lands.  I often entertain my colleagues with tales from my trips.  They are the ones who encouraged me to write about my adventures.

Although some may be confused by the home visiting title, I oversee early childhood home visiting programs.  Services are provided to families of young children, focusing on school readiness and socialization skills.

I have been in the early childhood field for over 15 years.  I have held many different positions from preschool cook, preschool teacher, Kindergarten teacher, preschool director, and various management positions.  I have Master’s degrees in Early Childhood Education and  Early Childhood Administration and am currently working on my Doctorate in Education – Transformational Leadership. I love my job traveling, training, and working with home visitors.  I have three dogs and a cat named “Dog”.  I enjoy reading and writing.
