MYI Early Childhood Reflections
I see this blog as a dwelling place for my enthusiasm about "all things early childhood." I teach 3 year olds and I love it. I also mentor new early childhood teachers.
I enjoy exploring why I do things a certain way - the "theory" behind the "practice." I'd love for this blog to be a soft place for teachers, parents, and caregivers to land, to consider a variety of educational topics, and perhaps help us understand little ones a little better.
