David Pfeiffer, Chairperson of the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission
David Pfeiffer has recently been appointed Chairperson of the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission (CARPC). With experience as a private sector business owner, town government official and regional planning representative, he brings an unique perspective to this role.
Since joining the Commission in 2012, he and his fellow Commissioners have strived to reimagine CARPC as a trusted source of information and expertise for Dane County communities. This included shifting away from an aggressive regulatory stance towards collaboration and communication; encouraging municipalities to consider long-term impacts as well as regional interconnectedness.
Early Life and Education
Early childhood development for a child begins during their time in utero and is further shaped by their interactions with parents. These experiences are crucial to their emotional, social and academic success as well as providing the basis for future learning capacity, behaviors and physical health.
Recently, education of young children has seen an uptick in research and is now seen as a crucial issue by municipal, state and federal governments. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals stress the significance of ensuring all children have access to quality pre-primary education.
Students aspiring to be an early childhood educator must complete courses on classroom management, teaching techniques and curriculum development. Many of these courses are supplemented with field experience – students visit schools and work in classrooms to gain firsthand insight into what it’s like to teach in a real setting.
