A new position in the Long Beach Unified School District has just begun for recent College of Education graduate, Dr. Reshon Moutra. Dr. Moutra, who just completed her doctoral degree in Educational Leadership this May, has been promoted to Program Coordinator of Child Development Centers in the Long Beach Unified School District. The 29 Child Development Centers throughout Long Beach and Lakewood serve 2,200 students ages 3-12 years old. Dr. Moutra will work under the direction of the program director and in tandem with two other program coordinators to supervise educational and clerical support staff and oversee the daily operation of all 29 centers, in addition to an enrollment center.
Dr. Moutra credits CED’s Educational Leadership Ed.D. program with providing the necessary leadership tools to support the staff she now oversees. This support helps to ensure that the children in their centers receive the care and high-quality educational experiences they need.
Sharing about the Educational Leadership program, Dr. Moutra says, “The cohort model was a true life saver. I made lifelong friends, the faculty and staff have been so amazing and super supportive. I have learned so much in this program. The experience has certainly been one for the books. I am soo happy that I chose this program.”
