Early Childhood Education

The early childhood education field can often be very stressful. We work in a job where we are required to give of ourselves all day year round (no summer off for us), manage our time in a way that we can meet multiple goals at once (which is sometimes next to impossible), remain calm and collected when students are having meltdowns, find time for research and lesson planning on our own (off the clock), help and work with co workers who we do not always see eye to eye with, have to explain to parents and some public school teachers that we are educators too and not babysitters, feel very unappreciated by society when we are doing all we can to make changes to the education system to improve learning conditions, and have to provide our own supplies with the little money we get paid already. On the flip side, our hearts are opened by the generosity and strength that children show us. We can feel a complete sense of pride and accomplishment when we see our students learn and grow. We know we are making a difference and it helps us to move forward everyday and research different methods of helping children succeed giving us a real sense of purpose.

With this in mind, I have decided to add a section of my blog to help with staff morale. It will focus on finding solutions and ways to deal with the stressors of the job and the problems which are bound to come up in the workplace.

Always remember...
