I have always been ambitious and fell in love with learning from my mother who was an elementary school teacher. At the same time as completing my high school courses, I would also take college courses during the evening and every weekend until I had completed my certification in Early Childhood Education. At the same time as I graduated from high school, I graduated from college. My first teaching assignment was teaching a playschool program for four year olds. As our students were about to move into kindergarten we took ‘graduation’ photos as special keepsakes for the future. We even had them published in the local newspaper just like the grade 12 graduates that year.
