Mike Michelon

Northern Regional Vice President

For the past 20+ years Mike has dedicated his professional life to education, not only in Early Childhood Education but also at the K-8 level. Prior to working in the ECE field as the Executive Director and Program Director of Siskiyou Child Care Council, he was a 5th grade teacher, K-8 principal and a K-8 district superintendent for over 10 years with state preschools on some of the campuses.
