This is the last week of my first class for my early childhood studies program through Walden University. Overall, it went better than expected. I learned many new things about the early childhood field. A lot of that new information came from my classmates. Thank you for posting supportive comments on my blog and on the discussion boards. Thank you for sharing resources, experiences and ideas that I’m sure we all learned from. I know some things I’ll definitely be able to use in my future work. I will be thanking some of you personally on your blogs, but I’m thanking the rest of you here. I wish you all success in the future. Good luck.
I started the Play2Grow blog to network with other childcare providers. I’m currently working on my masters in early childhood studies with a concentration in administration and management. I’m a preschool teacher working with children from ages two and a half to five. I've been a volunteer in the infant and toddler rooms which was a great experience. I’ve had several part-time jobs at other childcare centers and have completed an internship in 2009. I have a bachelors degree in mental health and human services and certifications in child development and infant/toddler orientation. I enjoy working with children and planning creative activities for them. I believe that play is the best way for them to learn.
On a personal note, I have two spoiled cats. I spend a lot of time on the computer either writing entries for the blog, finding articles for my animal related Pawlog twitter feed or reading random things that I find. I enjoy the outdoors as well. If you have any comments or questions, E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
