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!!!!
