In 2007, 4C again recognized Dr. Sciarra's work by naming the 4C library in her honor. Dr. Sciarra has mentored many early childhood educators, including coauthor Anne Dorsey. Together they also wrote LEADERS AND SUPERVISORS IN CHILD CARE PROGRAMS (Delmar Cengage Learning). In 2010, Dr. Sciarra and Professor Dorsey were honored with the United Way Impact Award for their work in promoting appropriate early childhood education.

Dr. Adams has taught graduate and undergraduate students in such courses as child development, preschool methods, primary methods and, early childhood advocacy, research, and leadership.

She also advocates for children and families by serving on local and state committees that support quality early care and education and serves the University's mission by providing support for Catholic Early Childhood programming. Dr. Adams became immersed in early care and education through her work with the Bombeck Family Learning Center and has established partnerships with Head Start, Public School Preschool, Early Care and Education, and a variety of agencies that support young children and families.

Review:

"It is current, comprehensive, chocked full of pertinent information for new directors/administrators and yet, would provide a boost of new insights for the seasoned management system."

"This text is comprehensive, easy for students to read and understand, and provides up-to-date accurate information for early childhood administrators."
