Through my educational experiences, my teaching style has evolved and continues to unfold. As an Early Childhood Educator, the future is an exciting and challenging role. I believe that children develop their learning abilities through attitudes, values, and interests of their parents and teachers. Children learn through play, experimentation, exploration, and social interaction among their peers and mentors. I believe that learning should be fun and with positive reinforcement and proper guidance, children will develop autonomy within themselves and progress in their educational development.
