Her duties included supervision of early childhood education students at two on-campus laboratory child development centers at San Jose City College and Evergreen Valley College, as well as child centers in the local community. Her teaching responsibilities encompassed early childhood education, child development, and parenting courses. She received her MA from San Jose State University and her vocational community college life credential with coursework from the University of California at Berkeley. Her experience includes working as a teacher, director, and an early childhood education consultant in public early childhood programs, parent cooperative programs, and private early childhood centers. Ms. Machado is an active participant in several professional organizations that relate to the education and well-being of young children and their families. She is a past president of California Community College Early Childhood Educators and the Peninsula Chapter of the California Association for the Education of Young Children. Her authoring efforts with Dr. Helen Meyer-Botnarescue produced a 2007 text in sixth edition for student teachers entitled STUDENT TEACHING: EARLY CHILDHOOD PRACTICUM GUIDE. An additional text, EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN EDUCATION, was co-authored with Romana Reynolds in 2006. Both are published by Thomson Delmar Learning.
