"My time in the Child Development program was both challenging and enlightening. I connected very much with my professors and felt supported and cared for the whole way. There were several hands on service learning opportunities which prepared me tremendously to work with a variety of age groups and communities. After graduation, I worked as a theater arts teacher, exceptional needs aid and later toured Latin America as a hospital clown. Currently I am working as a full time teacher at Little Saplings Preschool with hopes to pursue a masters in Social Work in the coming year."
