Holly Farmer - Pioneer Technology Center
THEN: A Newkirk High School student not knowing what she wanted to do with her life. Interested in taking care of children, Holly volunteered at child care facilities. She enrolled in the early care and education course at PTC in hopes of discovering a connection. At Pioneer Technology she
- Learned theories and techniques to plan and present activities that are developmentally appropriate for the age of the children.
- Took courses in health, safety, nutrition, child development, creative arts and classroom management.
- Received her teacher assistant and master teacher certification.
NOW: Holly’s certifications helped her obtain a job at Ponca City YMCA as a site director for the after school care program. She is a kitchen manager and teacher assistant in the early child care program at Pioneer Technology Center’s Ponca City campus. Holly credits Pioneer Tech for giving her options she may not have thought of on her own.
