“Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers.”
This is a quote that stands for everything that guides and shapes me in my profession. Teaching and caring for children has always been a great passion of mine. I have been teaching and caring for children for well over 17 years, 12 rewarding and fulfilling years. I am aware of all challenges that come with this job and the great responsibility that is needed. These challenges however have never stood as an obstacle for me as child care is not a job, but a love that I have. I am able to deal with all situations by being a patient, caring and nurturing person. I uphold strong principles of reliability and honesty, which is of great importance when being entrusted by parents to care for their children. This, along with all my experience has allowed me to develop both personally and professionally. I always seek to create a safe, friendly and secure environment. I have a great understanding of child development and the ability to interact with children in a manner specific to their differing personalities and needs. Caring for children is something that comes naturally to me, something I value greatly and put a great effort into as it has been my most rewarding experience. Forming relationships and interacting with children of different personalities is something I cherish. Yes, there can be many ‘thorns,’ but at the end of the day, gathering the ‘flowers,’ is what makes my life special.
