Kathy Klatte Professional Development Winner named

Matt Miller, lead teacher in the Preschool 4 classroom at the Day Nursery Hendricks County Early Care and Education Center was named the inaugural recipient of the annual Kathy Klatte Award for Professional Development. The presentation was made Tuesday, October 20 at our Annual Meeting held at the new Day Nursery Northwest Center. Kathy Klatte was a well loved staff member for 27 years (1980-2007) who passed away unexpectedly in March.  Klatte joined Day Nursery as a teacher and during her tenture also served as a Center Director and  Director of Center Administration. Throughout her service to Day Nursery, in all of these capacities, her greatest joy was seeing teachers succeed in in their work. The Kathy Klatte Award includes $250 for the recipient to use toward professional development.
