“I have had the pleasure of working with Stephanie Fanjul for more than 15 years.
She has demonstrated her leadership capabilities in many different situations during that time - working on local, state and national policy initiatives affecting young children as well as on broader public policy concerns.
She is perfectly situated to be able to provide clear and forceful leadership to NAEYC during what will be a difficult and yet exciting time.
In particular she has a firm grasp of financial issues -- having served as Treasurer of NAEYC, Director of the NC Division of Child Development, and President of the NC Partnership for Children.
In the current financial crisis, which will almost certainly be a reality for the next several years, her full understanding of public financing will be an invaluable asset for NAEYC.”
“Stephanie is a champion for children and families.
For over 25 years, she has worked with governors, state legislators and congressional leaders to create resources for children.
At this critical time, Stephanie’s experience and leadership is exactly what is needed in order for NAEYC to play a leading role to bring the early childhood and education community together to work with the new administration on developing creative policy initiatives that will have a lasting impact for children and families.”
