Thursday, May 4th, 2017 Childtime Honors Mentorship Award Winner Travis Poteat

234-travis-lmm-awardROSEVILLE, Calif., May 4, 2017 – Childtime is proud to honor teacher Travis Poteat from its Roseville, Calif., school location as this year’s recipient of the company’s highly coveted Lisa Miskimins Mentorship Award.  Poteat was chosen from among nearly 18,000 early education teachers nationwide from Childtime and its sister schools in Learning Care Group.

This mentorship award was established in the name of Lisa Miskimins, Senior Vice President of Operations – an outstanding leader and advisor to many in the early childhood education industry.  With this distinction, each year, the company recognizes a teacher who shows remarkable leadership attributes and an ability to guide others to perform at their best.

A Preschool Team Lead, Poteat is a highly experienced educator who plays an integral role in hands-on training for the company’s newly hired early preschool, preschool and pre-k teachers. He is also the District Mentor Safety Captain, coaching teachers who serve as the company’s school-based Safety Captains throughout the Sacramento- Roseville-Bay Area.  Poteat demonstrates one of the greatest hallmarks of a gifted leader:  the ability to recognize and encourage leadership traits in others.

“Travis’ dedication to training and mentoring colleagues on our curriculum, operational processes and safety protocols is truly exceptional,” said Teri Davies, West Division Vice President for Learning Care Group.  “Besides doing a terrific job teaching our children, he has consistently gone above and beyond to support his colleagues in achieving their full potential.  We deeply appreciate everything he does to inspire excellence and guide our associates in ensuring a safe and nurturing learning environment.”
