I was reminded of my time working in the legal field when I had a dream the other night. My oldest daughter has been offered and will soon begin a job at juvenile hall in the probation department in the county where we live. Maybe that inspired the dream, maybe it was something I ate, who knows??
Don't get me wrong, my jobs in the legal field (I was also a legal secretary for 3 years) were great jobs, but just didn't fulfill my heart's desire to work with children. I mean, as a child I did spend lots of time behind my house writing and drawing on the chalkboard we had attached to our smokehouse, pretending that I was teaching students. (little did I know) However, I didn't even fully realize this dream until I began homeschooling my oldest when she was 4 and began teaching group studies like Little House in the Big Woods. My natural creativity and enthusiasm began revealing itself.

When we impact a generation, we are literally TOUCHING the future. As early childhood educators we have the amazing privilege to help shape the people they will become and the huge responsibility to teach them how to make tomorrow brighter than today. We are so blessed!
