If I could make a living doing what I love, I would make a living improving the lives of children. That is why I am going into the field of early childhood education. Through the program I am attending, I will be getting certified to teach regular education and special education birth – grade 6. Education should be a process that kids enjoy, not something that they fear or dread, that is why I want to be able to create a learning environment for children that will encourage them to succeed and to do their best and give them someplace that they feel safe and comfortable, especially for those students coming from a lower socio- economic standing.
The field of education and the value of a good teacher can change the world in more ways than one. If a child has that one adult influence that portrays something positive and provides hope, children may be able to flourish more and this could help kids stay in school and off the streets and make something out of themselves which is so important. It is heart breaking to see students drop out of school or hate attending because it shouldn’t be that way. My dream and goal in life is to be the best teacher possible and provide endless opportunities to the youth. This is my passion and is all I have ever wanted to do, and I believe full heartedly that being a good teacher can make the world a better place.
