Preston Public Interest Career Fund Recipient
“The relationships that I formed with the kids were both the most challenging and rewarding part of my internship.”
The most incredible thing about my job was that every day, even when it was hard, I knew that I was there not just to provide care for the kids while their parents worked but to prepare them for kindergarten, help them develop emotionally and socially, and give them someone in their lives who could play and laugh and love them no matter what. The kids themselves taught me about child development and psychology, a field that I am greatly interested in academically. I took notes on their behaviors and conversations, looking forward to making connections when I start Infant and Child Development in September. But it wasn’t only the kids that I learned from. The lead teachers that I worked with in the classroom were immensely instructive in everything from classroom management to teaching strategies for one-on-one work with children to further insights into child development.
