Joyce Johanson, M.S.Ed., has worked in the early childhood field for 22 years. The Associate Director of the Center for Best Practices in Early Childhood since 2000, she was formerly the Coordinator of Macomb Projects. Grant writing, budget oversight, evaluation, and other administrative responsibilities make up her day; however, her passion is reading for pleasure. Her desire is that all children have opportunities to experience great children’s literature and learn to love reading as much as she does.
