“School districts are among the largest employers in NPC’s service area,” says Gail Campbell, NPC’s associate dean of Education & College Career Preparation. “With 22 public school districts and 35 Bureau of Indian Education Schools, NPC helps supply the local workforce and meet the undeniable need in the area for quality teachers,” Campbell continues. In addition, NPC’s Early Childhood Education program offers direct to work degrees and certifications for those interested in entering careers in early education (for children birth through age eight). “A child’s earliest years are a critical period for learning and development,” Campbell explains. “At NPC we understand how important early childhood development is, and our program emphasizes child-centered, developmentally effective and culturally sensitive practices.”
