I am a future educator.
One of the most common questions I am asked is "What's your major?" When I tell people Early Childhood, most cringe and say "Why?!" and some say "Better you than me!"
I understand kids are a handful and can be a headache, but I am happiest surrounded by little ones. Very rarely does a crying baby get on my nerves. I don't mind sticky hands and faces. I love to answer a child's unending stream of questions. Their innocence and youth is inspiring. They will believe everything you tell them and trust to a fault.
I know this is the job for me. And yes, better me than you, because I will care and love for each of the children that cross my path. I will answer their questions. I will accept them for who they are. I am excited to be a teacher.
