Reflecting on Learning

 My most passionate hope for my future as an early childhood professional and for the children and families with whom I will work with is to truly make a difference. I want to have a beautiful, safe, secure, positive classroom environment for my students. I want to promote diversity and culture in my classroom too. I want to create a curriculum for my students that will be anti-biased. I will make a good point to let my students know they are loved and cared about and can talk to me about anything if they feel the need. I want parents and families to feel welcome in the class anytime. I want to have a good solid foundation set for my students and families. I want to have great communication with both and encourage that all throughout the year. I want the centers in my classrooms to be educational, fun, and positive. I want to make a difference! That's my goal!

I want to thank my colleagues and friends for taking the time to always stop by to read my blogs and to comment. It truly means a lot to me and I hope my blogs have been informative for you and I wish you the best in all your endeavors!


  1. Hi Stacy, it is very clear from your writing that you are fully committed to implementing an anti-bias curriculum in the center where you work. I can identify with many of your choices. Adding on from this I appreciate the words of Edwards (Laureate Inc., 2011) about decisions. We have made a decision to help "raise children proud in who they are, connected to their families, connected to their communities, open to-, eager to embrace people who are different." Here's wishing you every success in your life's journey and continued growth in anti-bias education.

  2. Stacy,
    Making a difference! That’s a great goal. Through anti-bias education, I believe we can accomplish this goal! I can tell from your post you care about children and you are interested in their success. You see, I think that is a problem with our field, teachers don’t love what they do anymore. I know that we do not get paid what we deserve for whatever reasons but we teach anyway because we love kids. Keep encouraging children and families! Thanks for your thoughts and support throughout this program.

  3. It is always nice to know when you have touched the life or made a difference in someone's life or family. I would like to thank you for the insight and advice given during this course.
