We, as early childhood educators, have a valuable role in helping to give the children a good foundation in life.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2013
In his new book “The Boy Who Became an Early-Childhood Educator: Reflections, Memories, and Future Thoughts about Our Field” (published by iUniverse) author and educator Manuel Kichi Wong, M.Ed., shares true stories from his daily journal to help inspire others who work with children to “do the right thing.”
“I wanted to remember the experiences working with children in my child care setting,” Wong says. “The best way for me was to do it each and every day I worked with the children. I saw that there was a need for students to have more information about our field so I have key points and suggestions for them to ‘practice’ out in the field.”
An excerpt from “The Boy Who Became an Early-Childhood Educator”:
“In my journey in life as an early-childhood educator, I have changed many of my ideas as I gained more information in my studies. I have seen, heard, and continue working with children, which gives me more credibility. I have seen the deep sensitivity of the children I work with, and seen and heard the teachers speak about positive and negative working experiences in the classroom. I go back to my inner heart and see the true reason why I am still in the field of early-childhood education.”
Wong takes his responsibility as an educator seriously, and urges others in his place to do the same. “Those children we work with are important,” he reminds readers. “We as early childhood educators have a valuable role in helping to give the children a good foundation in life.”
