Sarra WicklineThe Bright Futures Scholarship Program was developed by Bright Horizons to support the field of early childhood education by offering scholarships to future teachers.

Here is what Bright Horizons had to say about Sarra Wickline:

“Sarra holds an Associate’s degree from Skyline College and is continuing her studies to earn her Bachelor’s degree from San Francisco State University. While completing her Associate’s, Sarra worked as an Associate Teacher at the Early Learning and Child Development Center on campus. Her supervisor writes that “she was able to use positive interactions to engage the children and keep them focused.” Sarra plans to continue working with young children and hopes to become a kindergarten teacher after completing her Bachelor’s degree.

“In the meantime, she plans to continue to work as a preschool teacher. Sarra believes that ‘children and their families deserve the most dedicated, creative, passionate, innovative, and understanding teachers.’ It is those qualities that she tries to reflect in her teaching practice and reinforces her goal of becoming the best educator she can be.”

The ECE/EDU staff here at Skyline College are so proud of Sarra and the work she continues to do for children and families!!
