Introduce yourself

    Hi Everyone my name is Cheryl Morris I am a recent graduate from St. Louis Community College Meramec. While at STLCC I was studying early childhood education. I Graduated with my Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have some experience with working with young children before. I worked with preschoolers during my senior year of high school, the preschoolers came to my high school and I was able to teach them a lesson on fire safety. I also was a student teacher last year at Kirkwood United Methodist Preschool (Spring 2018) for my child development laboratory class at Meramec and I was a student teacher at St. Anthony's Child care Center (Fall 2018) for my Teaching Practicum Preschool Class. I enjoyed being a student teacher because I was able to build a relationship with the teachers and the children that I would be teaching. From the moment that I worked with preschoolers during my senior year of high school I knew right away that i wanted to work with preschoolers. Since I have graduated from college i am currently looking for a job in an early childhood center alongside the teacher, I am looking forward to hearing from everyone on their experiences in the field.

    Congratulations Cheryl! It's always exciting to complete another chapter of your career goals or for some people bucket list.  It sounds like you have had many opportunities to gain insight from seasoned teachers. I would suggest checking with your local Head Start Agencies, they are always hiring assistant teachers. If you decide to go back and pursue your undergraduate degree check with your State to see if they participate in the T.E.A.C H. program. There are often scholarships available to assist with your education.  Best of Luck!
