As my readers know, I am on a journey from the world of finance to the world of early childhood education. A few months ago I started the research process to determine the best road to take. I spoke with Professors, graduates, visited schools, attended information sessions and even sat in on classes. I narrowed down to my favorite which was not hard.
Almost two decades after I first applied to schools, and a 13 year financial career, I once again began writing essays and requesting recommendation letters. The process this time included an additional on the spot essay and interview.
With humble intentions, I announce that I was accepted to the program of my dreams! June 1, I begin work towards my Masters in Early Childhood Special Education and General Education at an amazing school in New York City. My hopes are to be in a preschool classroom soaking up even more knowledge by September.
Not only is this a huge step forward towards my goal to open a Preschool it will also impact the topics with which I blog about. As I learn and study, I will report here on current research, my own findings and tactics used in progressive Preschools.
What has been almost a lifelong dream has now become tangible. It is here, it is real and I am on my way. I look forward to sharing this journey with you and I cannot wait for the day I can post from my own school.
Here we go!!!!

Congratulations!!!!!!! So exciting, I wish you much success.
It is fun and exciting to observe your journey. And a real educational. So much we weren’t aware of when our kids were growing up. Makes me wonder how they reached adulthood in one piece!
Congratulations on being accepted to your school of choice. I look forward to following you every step of the way, as you follow your dream.
I, too, look forward to following you on your journey!
Lots of love…
I wish you much success.
