Reflecting on Learning


My most passionate hope in regards to my career in early childhood education is that I would eagerly seek to develop deep connections and relationships with children and families in order to maximize my effectiveness as a teacher and build on the strengths of each of my children and families. I want to inspire a community of learners that seeks to be compassionate, empathetic, welcoming, and eager to learn and try new things. This passion stems from my original passion of becoming a teacher. As Julie Olsen Edwards states, our job “requires adults who speak up and make a part of every day in the classroom, in the school, in the community, a statement building on the strengths of children” (Laureate Education, Inc., 2011).

I would like to thank my colleagues who have taken part in this journey alongside of me. Thank you for your transparency, for you shared experiences, for your honesty, for your encouragement, and for your love to reach children and families and invest in their lives on a daily basis.
