I created this blog while in my Masters' Program. Now that I am done, I wanted to continue with this blog, so that others can share their thoughts, ideas and opinions in a respectful and knowledgeable way. My background is in Child Development, Early Childhood and Human Services. So a lot of what I post I want it to focus on how we can make changes so that our children have something to look forward to. I love to educate. We are never to young, to old or to educated to continue to learn.

Reflecting on Learning
Wow....wow....wow!!! That is all I can say when reflecting on what I can describe is the most enjoyable course plan I have had the privilege to be a part of. To look back over the course of a year and a half of taking courses, gaining knowledge, very insightful and rich conversation with like minded professionals, has been a wonderful experience. To hear the different scenarios and issues that others have faced and to be able to give a professional perspective to help your colleagues come up with appropriate solutions that are aligned with best practices is so rewarding. The different courses that gave me so many different ways to look at cultural diversity in early childhood and to look at it from different aspects. The Foundations in Early Childhood Studies course had me so excited for this program and to think that I am one more class away from being completed with this program.
My hope for my future is to take what I have learned and gained and share it with those professionals who do not get the opportunity to be able to really see how implementing diversity is so essential in making sure they have a well rounded and inclusive early childhood program. Being able to bring some current resources and best practice tools to the field is something that excites me and for the state I live in, having someone such as myself that can write up training modules and curriculum to present that I believe will be appreciated and reciprocated for our professionals is such a great feeling. I am so ready to see what doors will open once I obtain this degree.
I would like to thank all of my colleagues and Dr. Bird-Pickens for such an enriching past 8 weeks. Some of the topics we discussed really took us to different places and situations that we could eventually come across but I feel confident that we are all able to look back, think on the lessons learned and take what we have gained and implement it effectively. I do wish all of you continued success in the future, I hope you continue to be blessed and highly favored and remember this, You can do all things through Christ that strengthens you..Philippians 4:13. A scripture that I live by everyday.
