    I decided to work with children because its an amazing feeling to see children progress and learn the things that you are trying to teach them. Its so heart warming when you walk in a classroom and the children call your name and run to give you a hug. I have my 90 hour Pre-School Certification, 45 hour Infant/Toddler Certification and I am studying Early Childhood Education.
