Welcome to the Little Teepee Child Development Center. My name is Tracy Rushing and I have been married for seventeen years. I have three daughters’ ages thirteen, eleven, and seven. I attended the University of Southern Mississippi where I obtained a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I also attended William Carey University where I gained a Masters degree in Reading as well as a Psychometry Endorsement. Teaching is my passion. I spent the first portion of my career in a Kindergarten classroom where I inspired five-year olds to love learning and I laid a strong foundation for their educational success! I am currently the Director of the Little Teepee and the Early Education teacher. I look forward to serving the little ones who are enrolled in our preschool program as well as the students at Biloxi High School. We are truly a family of learning and a partnership in discovery!We appreciate the confidence that you have placed in our center by entrusting us with your most precious asset--your child. We are a unique facility because our center consists of a Career Technical Early Childhood Services and Education program that work closely with the children.
As a secondary early childhood teacher, my job is to instruct the high school students in child development and prepare them for employment in the child care field. As center director, I am to provide a quality, role model preschool to serve as laboratory training for the high school students. The secondary program consists of three child care and management classes, each lasting approximately two hours. My students will spend time working with the children. The children and high school students are always under the supervision of me and/or the child care teachers. The high school students help prepare and implement center activities, play outdoor activities, and serve meals. A special bond usually forms between the high school students and the children. The children receive lots of positive attention and TLC from the high school students, and the high school students derive enormous satisfaction from spending time with the children.
I look forward to working with you and your child.Tracy Rushing, DirectorLittle Teepee Child Development CenterBiloxi Career Technology Center1845 Richard DriveBiloxi, MS 39532Phone: (228) 374-6924Fax: (228) 435-6318
