Teacher of the Year Spotlight | Yvonne Virden

Each spring, Educational First Steps hosts an Early Childhood Educators Conference for childcare providers and educators in our partner network. Part of the conference includes a series of awards, named after our founder Dave Munson, acknowledging leaders in the field: Director of the Year, Home-Based Provider of the Year, and Teacher of the Year.

During this interview, you will get to hear from our 2023 Dave Munson Teacher of the Year award recipient, Yvonne Virden, as she shares her story of being an early educator at Arlington-based center Kidz Are People Too and partnering with Educational First Steps.
