The UCF Center for Success of Women Faculty (CSWF) is honoring Early Childhood Development and Education Associate Professor Dr. Judit Szente for making a difference at our university during UCF Women’s History Month.
She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Teaching English as a Second Language at the Teacher Training School in Jászberény, Hungary and her Master of Education and Ph.D. degrees in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood focus from the State University of New York (SUNY).
Dr. Szente has been a faculty member in our college’s Early Childhood Development and Education program for the past 12 years. Before she joined UCF, she was a Teacher and Program/Special Projects Director at the King Center Charter School in Buffalo, N.Y. and a Teacher and Administrative and Research Assistant at the Early Childhood Research Center at SUNY in Buffalo, N.Y.
One of Dr. Szente’s favorite UCF memories is the clothing drive that the college organized for Haitian refugee children in 2010.
“It was amazing to see students, faculty, and staff collaborating to gather all kinds of aid to recently arrived refugee children and their families in the Central Florida area,” said Dr. Szente. “I will never forget the faces of the children becoming excited for a new pair of shoes, clothes, and stuffed animals that we gave them.”
