About the Author

Barbara E. Harvey and has been working with kids since she was 13 years old. As an elementary, middle, and high school teacher, babysitter, camp counselor, house parent and mentor to kids she has had many years to perfect her craft. Her combination of education and experience has given her a unique view of children and how they think, feel and believe. She started her teaching career after graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science from Harris-Stowe University in Elementary Education. She obtained her Masters of Arts in May in Early Childhood Education from Oral Roberts University. In July 1995, Harvey was hired to develop the Early Childhood Development Program at Ozarks Technical Community College (OTC) in Springfield, Missouri. This opportunity afforded several honors. She became a part of the Missouri Teachers of Family and Consumer Sciences Board where she was the chairperson of two separate committees from 1995-1997. This Board worked with state legislators and the Missouri Department of Education to help them set and design a policy geared toward working with students on issues that related to family and consumer sciences. Harvey was also the keynote address speaker to the Springfield Home Daycare Association in May 1996 where she discussed professionalism in childcare. This 45 minute speech encouraged Home Child Care Providers to see themselves as professionals who offer a service to parents and their expertise in child care to the children. While at OTC, she was a co-leader of the Business and Technology Academic Advisement Team, she participated in a leadership-training program. This program involved nine faculty members participating in a team building and team facilitation class, which focused on Joiner’s Seven Step method of teambuilding. Upon completion of this class, she was paired with another faculty classmate and became the co-leader of the Business and Humanities Team at OTC. This group focused on helping to streamline processes and to improve the coordination of student advisement. Harvey currently lives in Atlanta, GA where she heads a parent development group called Parents, Teachers, and Advocates. The agency has trained over 3500 parents since 2006. She has been a radio guest and has spoken to a variety of agencies on the importance of parent development.
