My understanding of child-care and education was broadened, as well as my understanding of myself.
I learned so much about how to lead and teach a group of kids. The job was much more than ‘babysitting’ and I learned how to take care of children’s well-being, needs, social issues, and more. Not only was this job extremely fun, it was amazingly fulfilling. I feel better prepared to be an educator after working at Everwood. I also really came out of my shell and just let myself be silly and have a fun summer! It was perfect. My understanding of child-care and education was broadened, as well as my understanding of myself.
