At Pathways Early Education Center of Immokalee, our team is truly an extended family. Many of our staff members have sent their own children through the doors of Pathways, and some have even sent their grandchildren.
The heart and soul of the center is Valarie Bostic, affectionately known by the children as “Miss V”. For the past 20 years Ms. Bostic has been an advocate for the children, staff and families of Pathways Early Education Center of Immokalee.
She is the proud author and creator of START (Science, Technology, Arts and Reading Together.) START is an educational enhancement program designed specifically for Pathways to bring literacy to life by incorporating science, technology, the arts and reading into the curriculum through hands on methods. She is a member of the Florida Children’s Forum and a Program Committee member for the Southwest Florida Early Learning Coalition.
Valarie Bostic’s passion for education began early in her career while she was working in Europe for the US Department of Defense coordinating and directing programs for children of military families. She is a graduate of the State University of New York College at Oswego with a major in German.
