I have always loved and enjoyed playing with children, but I never thought of becoming an early childhood teacher. I was hired as a child care aide at the Miller Lab School about 6 years ago. Since then, I am lucky to be able to teach and have a routine while my children are older now. It is hard work, but it comes with a lot of playing and creating. In return, the children at the school love me and their parents accept me. This is the most rewarding aspect of my work. I also have the privilege of working with colleagues whose support and love are undeniably an important reason for me to stay.
