A northern Arizona educator who represents Arizona PBS was named one of 11 honorees nationwide for the PBS KIDS Early Learning Champions program, which recognizes and celebrates those who work with children from infants to second-graders.
Celena Ambrose of Holbrook serves as an early Head Start teacher for Holbrook Head Start, where she has worked for more than four years. She is known as a caring and dedicated teacher, role model and mentor who has balanced her duties as a full-time classroom educator with her studies in early childhood education.
“I felt ecstatic when I was told that I was awarded Early Learning Champion of Arizona. It blew my mind. I appreciate this award so much and can’t wait to experience all the opportunities it will present me,” Ambrose said.
