My name is Helen Olney and I have worked in the Early Learning Center since October 2006. Prior to that I had worked at Yakama Nation Headstart as a Homebase program coordinator. I also worked at EPIC Migrant program. Once I arrived here, I have had the opportunity to work in all the classrooms before settling into the position of Family Services Coordinator. I have always enjoyed children. I always say that they are "our best teachers. Their love is unconditional." I have raised two sons, as well as being a foster parent. I have two beautiful grandchildren, who have both spent time at our center. I am happy to be here and plan to stay until I retire.
