In this section, you will find my philosophy statement, position statement, and a paper I wrote about classroom organization. I feel that this work fits well under NAEYC's Standard 1, Promoting Child Development and Learning, because they all focus on children's development and learning. For example, in my philosophy of education paper I explain why I want to be a teacher and how important it is for me to help educate children. This fits well with standard 1 because it is focusing on key element 1b, knowing and understanding the multiple influences on early development and learning. My position statement focuses on Resegregation of Public Schools which fits around key element 1c, using developmental knowledge to create healthy, respectful, supportive, and challenging learning environments for young children. Lastly, you will see a paper I once wrote on classroom organization that also fits around key element 1c.
