I am Alice Dyer and I am the Family Engagement Coordinator currently located at the Pekin Site. I started my Head Start adventure with my child attending the program and volunteering in the classroom. In 1979 I began working as a Teacher Assistant then moved to a Teacher position. As the program grew I also held other positions such as the Career Development Specialist and Literacy Specialist. I have my Associates Degree and a Family Specialist Credential certification with the Gateways Program. I live in North Pekin with my husband and we have 3 grown daughters, 1 granddaughter and 3 grandsons. I enjoy hiking, reading and listening to music.
