Romilia SchlueterRomilia Schlueter has joined the team of early childhood educators for the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Early Childhood Education Program, which is provided through the Continuing Education Institute.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to share that Romilia will serve as our new instructor for the Infant-Toddler Credential Program in Spanish,” said Chenoa Ruecking, Education and Training Program Manager.

Schlueter brings twenty years of professional experience in the field of family support and early childhood in the Dane County area. She has worked primarily with low-income families, Latina/Latinos, service providers, and policy makers. In both her professional and personal life, Schlueter is recognized as a leader in the field of early childhood. As a former staff member for the Catholic Diocese and former Director of the Dane County Family Resource Center, Schlueter established credibility for both her direct service work with families, children, and early childhood professionals, and her community development efforts. Additionally, added to this strong foundation are essential skill sets in being a cultural broker to Latinas and Latinos. Romilia is fully bilingual in English and Spanish and has translated many of the trainings required by YoungStar.

You can hear Romilia on-air, as the host of Apoyando Familias-Aprendiendo Juntos (Supporting Families–Learning Together), an early childhood education class in Spanish delivered. Her training in evidence-based models for school readiness and abuse and neglect prevention combined with her expertise as an early childhood master trainer, provides content for powerful programming. Romilia earned her Accounting Degree from the National School of Business, El Salvador, C.A., and her Master of Arts in Religious Studies from Edgewood College. She has earned the WI-Alliance for Infant Mental Health (WI-AIMH) Infant Family Associate Endorsement and the Registry Language Endorsement.

The Continuing Education Institute provides child care education through nine Registry Child Care Credentials, seminars, early childhood training courses, and degree completion. Their online reach extends throughout the state of Wisconsin and from New York to California. The Infant-Toddler Credential is a foundational piece of quality Early Childhood Education, and completion of the course earns each student 12 academic credits.
