Parents as Teachers Announces Retirement of Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Cheryle Dyle-Palmer

Parents as Teachers National Center has announced that Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Cheryle Dyle-Palmer is retiring after 15 years of dedicated leadership and service. Her vision and contributions have led to many of the most inspired and important Parents as Teachers programs in place today. Cheryle’s legacy will continue as the organization reaches more communities and families, so that all children will learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential. 

Join us on October 26, 2017 for a retirement dinner and paddle auction to celebrate and honor Cheryle and her achievements, and to ensure that the initiatives she began will continue for years to come. Help us celebrate her vital Community Impact efforts, highlighting our work with pregnant and parenting teens through Missouri MIECHV* and Right from the Start, and our work within the Normandy Schools Collaborative.  

We are excited to share more about the local Parents as Teachers projects that Cheryle helped evolve into the new Show Me Strong Families program and how the integrated approach of these efforts is making a difference. 

All proceeds from the event will support the work of Show Me Strong Families and will continue Cheryle’s legacy of strengthening vulnerable families in St. Louis City, North St. Louis County, and Pemiscot County, Missouri.

The 2017 Parents as Teachers International Conference is coming to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – a great place to make connections matter! This year’s conference is about engaging with families and increasing the impact of our work through knowledge and strengthening connections to families, the communities we serve and each other.


We Stand with Dreamers

Our vision at Parents as Teachers is that all children will learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential. The decision by this administration to terminate the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program will make that vision harder to realize. 

Parents as Teachers promotes the optimal early development, learning and health of young children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers. We advance the delivery of high quality services for families through a comprehensive system of supports and innovative solutions.
