Abril is a Parent Educator with Family SPOT in the Southeast Region. She teaches parenting classes and oversees programs that equip families with resources so children are school ready. "I believe that by teaching new skills to families about early childhood development, I am making a difference in the lives of parents and children," Abril notes.
"Some days I put in 16 hours because you do what you need to do to get the job done. However, these are the most wonderful people you could ever work with - from those receiving services to the volunteers to the leadership. Having the opportunity to get to know these people is priceless."— Robert Sanders
