I believe early childhood is such an important time in a child's life. This is the age where young children learn to be social with their peers, learn structure in their everyday lives, practice their cognitive skills and learn who they are while they are growing among others. All students are so unique in their own ways, which is what I love the most about my students. They all are special and have different strengths and weaknesses that they can work towards in an early childhood curriculum. I can remember every teacher I had, especially the ones who taught me from when I entered school for the first time. I want to be the teacher that all my students remember from their early childhood experience. If I can achieve that it means I've inspired them, impacted their lives, and helped them grow.
