Celebrating Best in Class: Scott Zimmerman

Making a difference in the lives of children, having the opportunity to shape a new generation of learners, inspires me. To me, “leading with your heart” means servant leadership – putting the needs of others before your own. I have strong educators in my building. The teachers show up each day with one goal: to have a positive impact on the lives of children. I spend time daily walking through my building and recognizing the success each teacher as achieved.

I spent a short amount of time in another center helping to train a new director. During that time, I of course got to know the teachers and the children. This was more than a month ago. Recently, I was over at the center checking in. I was standing in the entryway talking with the director through the window, and a three-year-old little girl exclaimed, “Mr. Scott is here! Everyone! Mr. Scott is here!” The best part about working for Knowledge Universe is having the opportunity to provide guidance and support for children as they try to figure out the world around them.
