There is so much room for growth. Nonetheless, my hope is that we as educators, never loose our spirit. Let us stay focused on the prize. Even if we do not get to see this global endeavor to fruition, we are the ones in the position to enhance the growth and development of early childhood learners and their families today. We are all different, even when we are all the same. Let us be a most formidable alliance for children and families of diverse backgrounds.
One goal that will broaden my proficiencies is to learn more about the issues that I am not very comfortable with, and those that I do not fully understand. At work, I will continue promoting anti-biased language and encourage team members to share their strengths and weaknesses much like we did in this course.
A brief note of thanks to you, colleagues. Your experiences, thoughts and opinions have been instrumental in helping me put it all together. A special thank you goes out to our Professor, Dr. Parrish for her commitment to social justice and equity, and for her interest in each of us.
