2 Running Head: WEEK 1, JOURNAL I have been in the field of early childhood education for 22 years. Even after all that time, I don’t believe that I know everything there is to know about the world of preschool. I have always felt a need to be learning and growing, thus my enrollment at Ashford University. I have reflected on my strengths and opportunities as outlined in the disposition and chosen resources from Ashford’s Career Services that I believe with help me on my career journey. Strength: I provide equitable learning opportunities for all students in my preschool class of four-year-old children by assessing them using the Texas Pre-K Guidelines and creating a Learning Prescription with five goals from that checklist. The Learning Prescription contains five strengths of the child and five activities that can be done by caregivers (teachers and families). I use the Learning Prescriptions of each child to create my weekly lesson plans, working to incorporate at least three goals of each child into our daily activities. I plan large and small group activities and one-on-one time to accommodate each child fairly. My learning environment is created to help children be successful with space and furnishings arranged for safety, predictable daily routines, and positive interactions. Materials are accessible and labeled for easy clean up. I do not limit the number of children in an area but rather use that as a self- regulation learning experience. I display the children’s photos of themselves and their families, photos of activities we’ve done, and their artwork to help them take ownership of the room.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
