Hello, My name is Dr. Janice Samuel-Powell. I have been an early childhood and special educator for over 20 years. I have extensive training in curriculum, assessments, coaching, ABA, counseling and teaching. I am someone who believes that the early years in a child's development are the most important. Therefore, I am committed to ensuring that the needs of children and families are addressed and met.

The YMCA program mission statement aligns with my beliefs that we must develop our youth, promote healthy living and teach social responsibility continually in order for each and every child to reach their fullest potential. By working together, we can close the achievement gap and ensure academic and social success for every student which in turn, will enable them to be productive citizens.
