When I think about working with children and families there are many hopes that I have. I hope that I can help children develop good self-identity as well as foster a respect of others within them. I hope that I can work with families to help them understand their viewpoints and be an advocate for all families so that every child is able to get what they need to be successful. I would love to say ultimately my hope would be to live in a world were we all play a part and help each other despite our differences.
As an early childhood teacher, I feel that I still have a lot to learn about myself and anti-bias work with children. My goals is to keep being reflective by using a journal, attending workshops and continuing to learn and expand my understanding of the issues that surround children and the early childhood field.
I just want to say thank you to everyone! I have enjoyed reading and seeing all your ideas and creativity. I have been on this journey with a few of you since the start and I see that we are all in the next class together as well. I look forward to learning more with you all!!
