Time Well Spent

Three deeply felt learning’s from this program:

1.)    I have learned what impact teachers can truly make on the lives of children and families. I have learned that teachers have their challenging days, just as everyone else but that the job of a teacher is rewarding and can be a lot of hard work but fun too.

2.)    I have learned that it’s important to always keep up to date with new information/knowledge/statistics about children, schools, child development, etc. It’s important to always do research and find out the latest information on the important topics so you can stay up to date; that’s part of being an effective teacher.

3.)    I have learned how important it is to be an effective communicator. In order to be an effective teacher, you must be willing and know how to communicate effectively because communication is a huge part of every teacher’s career. We must know how to socialize and work with parents and know how to speak to them so there are no misunderstandings.

One long term goal:

1.)    My long-term goal is to become familiar with new state regulations, legislation, laws, etc to effectively maintain compliance with federal and state regulations.

Farewell message to my Instructor:

Dr Teri: You have been a wonderful instructor, always willing to help and answer questions as needed. You have contributed to my knowledge and learning over the last eight weeks and I have truly enjoyed being in your class. I want to express my gratitude for your dedication and passion in what you do. You have encouraged me to want to work towards all my goals and dreams and I’m really looking forward to my future. Thank you for everything and best of luck with your endeavors. 

Farewell message to my Colleagues:

Hello fellow classmates and friends! I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much I have learned from each of you. I appreciate those who have taken the time to read my discussions, blog posts, and commented. It really means a lot! I’m SO excited to be at the finish line and to take a giant leap towards my career as a future teacher. All of you have helped me get here and thank you so much for that!

  1. What a nice post Stacy -Good luck to you in your future. I'm sure it wasn't easy to chose three things we learned from this program - we learned so much!

  2. Stacy,

    It has been a pleasure reading your posts every week. Every week you shared your expertise, knowledge and information and I greatly benefited from reading about your experiences. Best Wishes and success to you...I know you will do wonderful things in your career.

    Thank you!

  3. As your Wordle says, I hope your years as a teacher keep you motivated, engaged, challenged, and smiling. Your enthusiasm and sincerity is apparent, and it came through each week as you interacted with the online classroom. I know these same characteristics come through in your teaching in your early childhood classroom. I hope this will always be. Best of luck to you!

  4. Stacy,

    From your blog this week it seems that you have learned some wonderful lessons. Each one is extremely important. I also enjoyed your wordle! Your enthusiasm came through in that. I wish you well as you continue your journey in the early childhood field.. It is a wonderful field that touches the lives of others as no one else can!

  5. Stacy,

    As you pursue your endeavors to eliminate bullying I tip my hat to you and wish you well. I, as well as family members, have been victims of bullying and unfortunately when it happened it wasn't viewed as bullying. Please continue on your journey. Also, on a personal note thank you for your suggestion about taking my capstone project and turning it into curriculum. I am hoping to do just that. Again, good luck.
