Carly,
It appears you have the passion to be a successful pre-k teacher; now just add in the child development applications, the essential skills to manage time and space, and the patience to zero in with each child and their unique interests. Strong emotional support, characterized by unconditional acceptance of each child’s worth, will establish a safe & nurturing learning environment for your students. One example of this is to engage in conversations with each child about things they like; this will capture insights for you to align these specifics with things they need to learn with your help. Dig into your studies deeply and look for opportunities to engage with pre-k kids along the way to becoming a teacher. Authentic experiences with kids this age will reveal your own ambition to be the best you can for these kids that badly need caring and supportive adults in their life. Your passion and ambition is a great asset to be successful.

Remember to always be patient and maintain a calm, understanding demeanor. With many children, especially those within the age range of the preschool and kindergarten are often express themselves in a wide array of ways. Whether they have a hard time learning, or may act like the overly energetic disruptive student, you have to remain kind and charasmatic. Treat these students with as much care and affection as possible.

I was a Preschool my first year out of College for 3 year olds and it was the best year of my career, but also one of the most challenging. Working with children can be incredibly rewarding and you can feel like you really make significant impacts in children's lives working with them each day. However, with those rewards comes challenges and I'd say in most cases, patience is the best thing to have. Having patience when working with children is crucial to your success as their teacher, but also their success as your student. I think this happens to apply even more when working with younger kiddos like preschoolers. They are more likely to want to try to do things on their own, even if they cant. Or tend to be a bit more emotional when being told not to do something. Having patience to allow them to try to thread the shoelace through their shoe or feel their feelings after being told they need to share a toy is what makes a successful preschool teacher. I miss the children I worked with and I still feel proud to see what they were able to accomplish in the year they were in my class. Rewarding is an understatement when it comes to being a teacher.
