My name is ____________. I was born and raised in a small town in _______. In elementary school I loved my teachers. They made learning fun and exciting. I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. As I got older, goals changed and I didn’t pursue that path. I became ________. The part I loved most about my job was ______________. I was (and still am) very active in my church and have had many opportunities to teach over the years. My favorite volunteer church positions were always teaching the children.
After I married my husband and we started a family, I felt very strongly that I wanted to be a full time mom. I became a daycare provider and was able to stay home with my daughter. I enjoyed being home with her but I wanted the opportunity to work with children a bit older. When our daughter was two years old, I was able to secure employment at _____________as an assistant preschool teacher. The time I spent working at __________was invaluable. I learned so much from the lead teacher and I knew someday I wanted to be a lead preschool teacher.
Well, fast forward about ten years. Our little family grew to four beautiful children. They range from 5 to 15 years old. Life has been very busy and a career in teaching/child care had to take a back seat. Now that our family is complete, I want to obtain my CDA and finally fulfill my dream to become a teacher.
