Early Childhood Education Instructor
I have been teaching, and working in higher education for the last several years. I currently work with Head Start and Early Head Start Programs as an Area Manager for San Luis County. Prior to working in this capacity, I worked in all areas of the preschool program.
I myself obtained both my Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in a blended learning format, and I understand the challenges that come with being an online learner. I am available to work with you on things that might come up during this course during evening hours as well as the weekends. You can contact me through email (email@example.com) to set up a time to speak or to answer any questions at any time during this term. I will respond to your emails, and questions, within 24 hours as I understand how important your time is.
My current position requires me to monitor, reviews and establish policies and procedures related to education in the childcare center. My primary responsibility is ensuring children are receiving comprehensive services in a healthy and safe learning environment. Students ability to learn depends not just on the quality of their teachers, but also on the comfort and safety they feel at school and the strength of their relationships with adults and peers there. I have a passion to in teaching Developmentally Appropriate Practices that encompass what is appropriate for the group, the individual, and the culture and community or the programs we work with. With a strong emphasis on making the curriculum child-centered; that is, respecting each child’s uniqueness, culture, ethnicity, religion, language, and learning style. Crucial to achieving this is an understanding of the ages and stages of development occurring with young children from infancy to 8-year-olds, the variations in their development, and their developmental process for learning. It is important also to understand that children’s development and learning in one domain influence and are influenced by what takes place in other domains. It is for these reasons I enjoy teaching Early Childhood Education courses, so that you too may learn the importance of a Developmentally Appropriate Practices and how we must learn the foundation in order to build the future for our children.
