CLARKSDALE – Amy Landfair is trading in pre-schoolers for college students as Coahoma Community College’s new early Childcare Developmental Technology instructor.
A native of Clarksdale, MS, Landfair joined the Tiger Nation this Fall as one of the Division of Career and Technical Education’s newest faculty members. She’s working with Childcare Developmental Technology Instructor Theresa Taylor to prepare students for professional careers Early Childhood Education.
Landfair received a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Development from Mississippi Valley State University and a master’s degree from Grand Canyon University.
With a family full of educators, she always knew that she would one day become a teacher.
“I always enjoyed being around kids. They always say go to school and do something that you love to do because it doesn’t feel like work,” she said. “Even though being a teacher may not pay a lot, it’s so rewarding to see the smile on your student’s face and knowing that they’re learning and you’re are making a difference in their lives.”
Prior to joining CCC’s faculty, Landfair served as a Kindergarten teacher at Frairs Point Elementary School and at Clarksdale’s Aaron Henry HeadStart Center.
At CCC, Landfair’s goals include keeping her students engaged with hands-on, fun activities.
“Most of our students either want to own their own daycare center or work at a Head Start or day care, so I feel that I can offer them some insight and help prepare them so when they do go into that field they’ll know what to expect,” she said.
