My last childcare experience is what I am currently doing, student teaching. I have a passion for teaching and love having an impact on the lives of children. I am currently teaching 26 children in a third grade classroom and love every second of it. I work with a lot of kids who come from broken homes and whose parents are struggling to make ends meet. They have no educational exposure at their homes, so I feel that I have a huge responsibility with them and owe it to them to provide them with the richest education as I possibly can. It is very difficult to not get attached to these kids. I have found through student teaching that I want to focus on one family and put my all into that.
