I have a huge passion for education and I love being able to meet with other girls with similar hearts. I soak up every minute with eagerness. Since my mom was an early childhood teacher for 26 years before she moved up to middle school, I have a foundation for much of what I’m learning. I’m thankful for that! I’ve even called my mom a few times after class to excitedly tell her about what we discussed and how I was able connect to it.
The main reason why I love this class so much is because of my professor. She is phenomenal! I’ve told my mom more than once that I want to be just like her when I grow up. She is the epitome of a kindergarten teacher. She’s been teaching at my university for 24 years, but she taught kindergarten for 11 years before that. Her energy and passion for early childhood education fuels every aspect of class and I eat it up. Her knowledge of young children is astounding and she has a heart to invest in us as future teachers. It is evident that she loves teaching and that makes me want to learn all the more!
