Thank you


An explanation of your most passionate hope for your future as an early childhood professional and for the children and families with whom you work or will work.
A brief note of thanks to your colleagues.

My most passionate hope for my future as an early childhood professional is that I can teach them the importance of understanding and respecting the identities of one another and they will use their power for good. I hope that they will stand up for themselves as well as protect each other from bias. I hope that my families will feel respected, understood, and important.

To my colleagues- Thank you for all of your insights and ideas as we have worked through this course together. I wish you all the best of luck with our 10th and final course!! Congratulations on all of your future endeavors!

  1. Hi Kristen,

    Respect and understanding is such a huge part of anti-bias education. I have enjoyed reading your discussion and blog posts, and I thank you for your insights into the topics we covered. I am finding it hard to believe that it is almost time for our last course in this program, it has certainly been a journey! I wish you all the best and I hope to work with you again in the future.

  2. I think it is important to teach children to respect themselves as well as others. Children need to know that everyone is different and our differences what makes us unique. Even though there are differences we all deserve to be treated with respect and with no discrimination.
