I'm Kristal Rosson. I am 19 years old. I switched my major to do this instead the reason why I changed it because I always wanted to help children to have a better childhood then I did. Anyways I am excited to take these course and start teaching. I am going to learn a lot and I am ready for it. Can't wait to meet you in person and my fellow classmates on Wednesdays.

I was born and raised in Mexico and came over to the USA when i was 18. since English is my second language it makes it a little challenging for me, but i i like challenges.

Hello :) my name is Elizabeth Rubalcava and I am 26 years old and I joined this class in order to receive an early childhood education teaching certificate. I worked as a pharmacy technician for 6 years and finally realized that it wasn't my passion, I have always been around kids considering that I come from a big family of 10 siblings. My sister is a special Ed teacher so I have been around her type of worked and became to love it. I work for the Palm Springs unified district with special Ed students and I am hoping to learn as much as possible in this class so I can share my knowledge with my work and with my students.

Hi,my name is Nora Hermosillo and I am 39 years old and I have daughter that is 12 years old. I currently own a hair salon in cathedral city, I opened when I was 18 years old. However, I was working full time and also going to college at night for few years I wanted to get my AA and transfer degree in Psychology, but when I got pregnant had to leave school. I only needed few classes to graduate and couldn't finish them, my dream always had been to work in a Juvenal jail to help kids with problems. Time flies and I couldn't make it happen for one or other reason the classes I need weren't available for me at night, so talking to one of my clients that we had known each other couple years. He told me about ECE classes it sounded interesting and I am here and after watching your video I know I can learn more and make my dream come through helping kids with family problems and work in different places. I am willing to learn as much as I can, also I will love to read the book that helped you with your career at the beginning. ("Teacher & child, A book for parents and teachers"' by Haim Ginott.
