Mrs. Emma Webster first became involved with Head Start through FACT, Inc., as a Head Start parent in 1997. She worked first as a volunteer in her child’s classroom, then was hired as a substitute, an aide, and then as a teacher. She has worked through the years to achieve a Child Development Associate degree, then an Associate of Arts degree in Early Childhood. She was selected in 2008 as the Arkansas Head Start Teacher of the Year.

She will be honored in April of 2012 at the National Head Start Convention in Nashville, Tennessee, where she will receive a plaque and $500.

She is widely requested as a teacher due, in part, to her obvious love and dedication to the parents and children in her care. Her creativity and energy seem boundless. She is particularly adept at (and dedicated to) getting parents involved in the education of their children. She is active in her church and is known throughout the community for her cake decorating skills also.
