I cannot believe that we have completed this program! I will miss the discussion boards and reading your insightful blogs. This program was very interesting for me because I was able to apply the information that I gained immediately into my professional life. I chose to work with toddlers because it was the only age group that I had never worked with. I wanted to have experience with the entire spectrum of the preschool, ages two and a half to five year olds.
The Early Childhood Development class was very practical for me because I was able to use the information from that class in my toddler class. It made me a more competent toddler teacher. The other class that I found fascinating was the Instructional Strategies for Adult Learners class. I would love to be an adult trainer/instructor and the different learning theories and strategies were interesting and useful to know as a future adult instructor. The third class was the Capstone class. It made sense of all the classes that I had taken in the previous semesters and showed how relevant they were in the real world.
I hope to become an instructor at a community college and continue in the early childhood education field. My long term goal is to continue to help children access early childhood programs wherever I am. I have enjoyed interacting with all of you in our blackboard discussions and blogs. I will always be thankful for your interesting views on the different topics that we worked on. You all pushed me to become a better teacher, communicator and student. I hope to collaborate with you in the near future.
Dr. Embree, you have been a great teacher and you have pushed me to do the best that I can. Thank you for your patience! I have enjoyed this class and I will definitely keep you posted on my future endeavors.
