Meet the "Blog Squad"

In an effort to provide a diverse blog, the Child Care Council of Kentucky surveyed our staff to see who would be interested in writing for the Kids Matter Blog.

We had several people interested in writing and they submitted "samples" of their writing. Once there was time to read through the entries, we were thrilled to find that we not only have staff that are amazing at their jobs, but we also employ some great writers with a diverse selection of passions.

The "Blog Squad" was born and we had several talks and meetings to discuss the best way to proceed. We are confident that you will enjoy the diversity of our new Blog Squad and we are thrilled to get back onto schedule for posting. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know. You can comment on the blog posts or you can always email us at

Without any further delay, I would like to introduce you to the new Blog Squad!

Hello! My name is Julia and I am an Eligibility Specialist with the Child Care Council of Kentucky. My background has been on the other side of the desk as a Preschool/Head Start Teacher, Observation Specialist with Head Start, and an Assistant Director in a STARS rated Child Care Center. I am passionate about curriculum and educating educators! I am all about bringing creative learning to all ages starting as early as the Infant Room. I look forward to bringing you- the director the latest in curriculum, themes, prop boxing, staff management, training, and inspirational leadership for staff, children, and families throughout Kentucky!

Hello! My name is Lynnsey and I work in the Call Center with the Child Care Council of Kentucky. After two years in the Peace Corps, I returned to the United States determined, more than ever, to make a difference in the lives of those whose voice is not always heard; those who are rejected by a society who judges you by the brand of shoes on your feet and the size of the television in your living room. What can you expect from my blog? Well, I want to teach. I want to be heard. I want to change lives. I want to share with my people the beauty of a world that isn't always as scary as we think.

Hello! My name is Betty Ann and I am the Special Projects Coordinator with the Child Care Council of Kentucky. I have been in the “people business” for my whole career.  All kinds of people of all ages, men, women, families and children have crossed my path. Surely there is a reason. Do they know what it is? Do I know what it is?  Sometimes yes, sometimes no, and sometimes, well, just maybe.
What people do and how they do it, what people say and how they say it, their ideas, my ideas, their talents, my talents……….then throw in some emotion, laughter, passion and love of life and there you have an idea of what to expect when you read my blog posts.

Hello! My name is Belinda and I am an Eligibility Specialist with the Child Care Council of Kentucky. Writing is not a menial task, a chore, a roadblock … writing is a passion, a search for the perfect flow of motivating and artistic wording that will draw in the reader. As a wife, mother of six, and grandmother of twelve I find myself writing many genres and always in search of creative expression through not only writing but photography as well. My purpose in blogging is to excite the parent into activities that will bring family unity, unwavering family bonds, and memories that will automatically light the darkest of nights with a smile. Those memories, that in looking back, always start with, “When I was a kid I remember…” There is no fonder a memory than being a child and remembering the good times shared with parents, siblings, and grandparents.

Hi, I’m Robin.  I've worked at the Child Care Council of KY for 12 years.  I have never blogged before, so am excited about trying something new.  I don’t have a specific area of interest for writing yet, so my blog subjects may vary.  However, I do have a general interest in conservation of natural resources, traveling, experiencing different cultures, and encouraging multi-cultural interactions.

Hi! I am Angie and I am the Office Manger at the CCC. I have worked for the Child Care Council of Kentucky for almost 5 years. I worked exclusively on writing the blog until job duties changed and it became too much for one person. My main interests lie in helping parents to help their children. Whether it is an education issue, a wellness issue or many other things, that is where my interest lies. I am fond of saying, "You do not need a million dollars or a Master's Degree to help a child." I look forward to getting back into writing and posting blogs!

Angie @ Kids Matter


We look forward to interacting with you soon!
