Elizabeth Miller, a Milford resident and a home visitor with the Visiting Nurse Association/SCC Nurturing Families will receive the National Parent Educator of the Year Award from the Parents as Teachers National Center.
Parents as Teachers is an international prenatal through age 5 child development curriculum used all over the world by home visitors and other early childhood educators. Each year, Parents as Teachers holds an international conference where over 1,000 participants attend workshops and seminars to learn the latest in early care and education. The Parent Educator of the Year Award is presented to three Parent Educators nationwide who provide outstanding service to the families they see.
Miller has been a home visitor/Parent Educator with VNA/SCC NFN for four years. Her program manager, Pamela Lorenzo, nominated Elizabeth on the merits of her outstanding work with the families she visits. “Elizabeth goes above and beyond her daily work for all of her families through building a supportive relationship and teaming up with the families to make each family the best prepared parents they can be,” Lorenzo said in a news release. “She tailors her work with each family
depending on the child’s age and the family’s needs. Elizabeth has truly been an asset to the program and I am so very proud to have her on my team.”
