Whether it’s babysitting, volunteering with children, or spending time with my three younger siblings, I have had a lot of experience working with children. I began my babysitting experience with my siblings, then family friends and neighbors. But, my best and favorite customers have been my parents that frequently have me care for my two sisters (ages 10 and 3) and brother (age 7) and we enjoy playing games, reading stories, and making art and crafts; also, I help them do homework, feed them meals and put them to sleep. Having younger siblings, I’ve truly grown to love working with children, and especially teaching them. At school, I am the vice-president of our Kids in Science and Engineering club, which is dedicated to spreading passion and knowledge of science and engineering to elementary school students.

All of the skills gained during these different opportunities are important and will be able to be applied to my future plans of

Mrs. Shoemaker also made each subject more interesting and exciting to learn. From her different funny voice, she would use, to the songs we would come up with as a class to memorize things, all the field trips she took us on, and class outside.

For this study, I chose to interview and analyze the Kaiser family. This family consists of Mindy, the mother, Matt, the father, and their children, Adeline and Lily. As a family, they are well-rounded in the community, their church, and involved in the children’s activities.

Creative Curriculum 1. Select and identify TWO concepts presented in the video you find significant as an early educator and explain why you selected these concepts (7 descriptive/detailed sentences) In the Creative Curriculum video, I noticed the schedule they kept was far more regimented then the other types of preschools.

I would like to be apart of ASB because I’m interested in helping Medea be the best school it can be.

I learned a lot from this opportunity. I learned that not everyone is as fortunate as myself, but most of all I learned how to be there for someone.
