My name is Maria del Carmen. I was born in Ecuador: the first
time I came to Florida was when I was 15 years old, then I came back five years
later. I did finished school in Ecuador. I have a degree in Fisico Matematico it
sounds confusing but its fun. I realize that i'll have better opportunity in Florida
even though my degree is not accepted. I still had the opportunity to work
environment. After s few months a met my partner, I have been with him for five
and half years. We also have a beautiful daugther.
My first job was being a babysitting for a while, which I loved then it hit
me, why not get a degree in earlyu childhood education. I got a job in a
preschool, I was able to do my 45 hours where I learned a lot, I'm not saying I
did not know things, it just helped me learn more. I'm exited about obtaining my
CDA; I know it will open a lot of jobs opportunities. I'm also willing to learn and
improve my teaching. I have worked for year and a half with young children. I
love how the children learn and how they are so curious about their
From my perspective, I know about children a little more by taking these
courses such as the 45 hours and also by having a child of my own.
I want to grow more as a teacher and be able to teach the appropriate things to
the young children. The CDA will help me learning the 13 functional areas. After
I compleye my CDA, I want to continue with mmy education one day so that can
work in an elementary school.
