Hey Kaiya!

I am a freshmen in college and I considered working with children. For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. However, I am not sure that is the career path for me anymore. I also considered becoming an Early Childhood Education major, which is working with toddlers before they go into school to kind of learn how their brain works. I am not a math and science person, which is something that I need for those careers.

I am now leaning towards a human service study major, this major is mostly about learning values and ethics when working with individual cases. I hope this helps!

Would you say that Early Education is difficult because of of the math/science aspect? Gurpreet Lally

Hi, Kaiya!!
If early childhood career is hard, it depends on you because working with children can be somewhat difficult because everyone has different type of ways of learning, so if you are very patience person, I think you going to like it.

Hi Kaiya!

This all depends on if you love it or not. Do you like working with children? Do you think you would enjoy helping the developmental, social, and physical needs of young children?

Just getting your degree won't be easy! Then you have to get certified. I'm sure it's tough! However, if working with students pre-kindergarten (pre-K) through third grade and teaching them core subjects such as reading, math, science, and social studies is something you are passionate about, then it will be worth it!

If you haven't had the opportunity to work with young children, you may want to find some volunteer opportunities. Perhaps at church, helping out in Sunday school, etc.

Hope this helps!!
