Earning my degree means so much to me. I have always wanted to work with children and watch them grow and learn. But I also wanted to be the best teacher I can be. So going to school to learn more about teaching and helping each child in any way I can means so much to me. And I am beyond proud of myself for getting it done. It was a struggle at times doing school and work full time and juggling family but now that I made it I am better and a stronger teacher for these kids.

Earning my degree means that I am better able to support all children in the classroom. I feel that the knowledge that I have gained allows mean to have a better understanding about the development process of children, and how to best serve them and their families. I love working with children, and this program has allowed me to fulfill my dream of continuing to learn and grow with new knowledge!
