The Joy of Teaching

“I went to school to become an educational psychologist, but a teacher along the way convinced me I could be a good early childhood teacher – now 25 years later I can see that both are blended fields. I love being able to see why and how a child is doing something, why they acquire a skill that way, and especially to help those struggling kids – the ones that need strategies to pull them along and make them successful. I love the a-ha moments and the successes – that is what brings joy to teaching.”
– Wendy Niska, Pre-Kindergarten Teacher
