Leadership and Advocacy articles

Leave a comment

I wanted to share these two articles that emphasize the importance of being a leader and an advocate for the field of early childhood education.  I feel it is an important part of our professional growth to reflect on how we see ourselves in these roles now and in the future.  Those of us who work in the early childhood field are already leaders and advocates.  The question is should we be doing even more?

I am a wife of 14 years and have two boys, one is 10 and an the other is 8. They are busy and keep us hopping. I have been a pre-school teacher for 9 years with a break in the middle to teach kindergarten in FL for three years, and I had the luxury of staying home with my two boys for a few years. I enjoy teaching pre-school age children it gives me great pride to help set a generation up to succeed in their school careers and life. I am currently going back to school to complete my masters degree in early childhood education at Walden University.
