Studying early childhood education as an undergrad, I attended a conference where the following question was posed.
What do you say to parents or administrators who ask what you're doing to "prepare young children for school"?When I heard the answer the speaker gave, I gasped, and knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I like to say: If you knew that, in a year or so from now, there would be a famine across the entire earth, and there wouldn't be enough to eat ...
... would you start starving yourself now?I want to be someone who can say things like this out loud, in a professional setting. Getting paid for it will just be the icing on the cake.
