My name is Ms. Amna and I have been in CAC since 12/2018. I’m a lead teacher for Two-3 classroom. I have been working in the child care center for ten years. I have an Associate degree in Early Care and Education. Also, I’m going to UMSL for Bachelor degree. Through the ten years, l learned so many things of the children needs and how to help them to develop their skills. Today, I know how to help children reach their needs and control their behaviors. Through my experience in the early childhood field, I feel I’m growing and learning over time. The first years I spent it working with the children, I found myself that I’m belonging to them, I felt I have a strong belief in this field. By interacting and observing children, I know that each child is variety and each child has their own rate to reach their needs. I understand the importance of developing their minds and preparing them for the future. I feel I have the opportunities to teach them in the different methods. I have the opportunities to show kindness to the children, colleagues, parents and those around me. I have an opportunity to build relationships, friendships, and a community. I always have the opportunity to make things better and improve things in and outside of the classroom. From my experience, I have the ability to set high expectations for all the children. I expect that all children can and will achieve in their classroom, and I don’t give up on underachievers.
My favorite part of teaching is watching my children grow and succeed in life, building relationships with them and watching them learn and grow as great little people. Also, they make me laugh every day. Helping children and their families is the most rewarding job I can think of.
