Hello everyone. My name is Marissa, this is my third year at VVC and my career goal is to be a preschool teacher. This class is the last I will need to have my full credentials for that so I am really excited to learn what I can from this as I take that on. I am also expecting my first child so I am looking forward to what this class has to offer in child development. My concerns I have for this class is keeping up with the pace of it with it being a 6-week course but I’m ready to take it head on. My strengths I can have for this class is my enjoyment in discussing the topics as I have always found child development very interesting and excited to learn from it.
