The OCDEL Policy Fellowship was an extraordinary opportunity to learn about all of the work that is being done to create consistent quality in early learning within Pennsylvania. I feel encouraged and empowered to bring my skills, knowledge, and experiences to the forefront of my role as an early childhood educator so that I may be able to contribute more to the work of the Commonwealth than ever before.
