I started my professional journey as a mother of six, 3 years ago. At the time, I thought I had good knowledge about children; but since then, I have realized that every day is an opportunity to learn more. Working with children is an amazing and magical adventure – I learn every day by simply interacting with them and in turn, each interaction carries new language and experiences for the children.
I have thoroughly enjoyed studying, completing three different courses in two years at Training Trust (Early Year Practitioner Level 2, Early Year Educator Level 3 and Supporting Teaching and Learning Level 3). Kate Moe-Geke, my tutor is a passionate and extremely supportive person, I always felt confident to ask questions when I was unsure and she was always ready to give a thorough explanation. Linking theory with practice and allowed me to see the need to provide playful and age-appropriate approaches in the setting. The skills that I have developed during my training and my general study have greatly enhanced my understanding of educational theories, approaches and child development.
I never imagined that I would fall in love teaching that much, and I am going to be always grateful for all that support what I have got along my study. Now, I am at a very exciting point in my life, as I applied for Level 5 Early Year Pedagogy at University, and they have offered a place to me. A degree will enable me to take the next step towards my ambition to become an Early Years Teacher- a role in which I feel I could make a positive difference to children’s lives and their life chances.
