Everyone has something that they’re passionate about; I myself have something that I believe is just naturally in me. I have a passion for children. Ever since I was a child I always cared for my baby dolls more than your average 5 year old would; I would bathe them, change them, play with them, and even talk to them. As I grew older I noticed that my love for children wasn’t just a toddler stage, it was in me! As I got older the love for children grew with me. Growing up, I was an only child around a lot of adults so as the youngest in the house I felt as if no one ever understood me. Once I entered High School, The High School of my choice was ranked #1 academic school in Tampa, Florida. It was a special magnet school in which students got to pick a shop and do hands on learning. The summer of my 8th grade year I got a letter saying I had been accepted to Tampa Bay Technical High School in the Early Childhood Program which included parenting skills, and child development.

I looked forward to going to the preschool everyday although I only got to work with them for an hour because I had other classes. With the children, I learned how to make them nutritious meals, redirect their misbehaviors,…

Early through Middle Childhood
“Kids don’t remember what you are trying to teach them. They remember what you are. (Jim Hansen)
Erikson (1950) “described early childhood as a period of vigorous unfolding” (Berk, 2010). Before we discuss the factors that influence children’s behavior values, or beliefs we must first understand the structure of these teachings and who guides the child. The outside influences…
There are many key factors that play into a child’s development, the most important of these: the early childhood educator. The early childhood educator plays the role of primary influence in the child’s life, encouraging relationships between parent and child and establishing relationships between parent and teacher, helping the child’s skill set expand and they’re mental, emotional, and spiritual capacities to grow. The feelings I get when I become an influential force in a child’s life along…
