I have a BA in creative writing and a minor in education. Currently I have a fairly open and flexible schedule. I recently relocated from Tulsa, OK to Huntsville, AL to be closer to my family. I spent my late childhood and teen years in Huntsville.
I do not have any children of my own, but I have always been around children because my mother runs a church nursery and cared for children in our home. I love to work with children because I believe that we have a responsibility to care for those who need it--and children certainly qualify for that! There is a short window of time during which we can influence and set a child on a good path, and I take every opportunity to help a child develop good social skills, good reasoning skills, compassion, and strength of character.
I do not use any form of punishment when I care for a child, but that does not mean that I allow children to run about undirected. My approach is to keep a child engaged and active in the process of learning. I address discipline issues with redirection and compassion. Of course, if one child is threatening another, I separate them. Short of that necessity, my goal is to help a child learn to make the right decision, not to condition a child to submit to the will of another.
