Time Well Spent

·         I have learned to comprehend the concept and applications of Early Childhood Studies.  I have learned to respond positively to this field and apply it to my everyday life and goals.

·         My long-term goal is to continuing my education by pursing another degree in education.  I would like to obtain a Ph.D. in Education


·         Farewell my fellow colleagues and Instructor…. This is a dream come true!! I am the second person in my family to obtain a Master’s degree.  It has been challenging and sometimes I even thought of giving up.  Thanks for all the motivation that I received from my family, friends and instructors.  Walden University made my learning experience wonderful.  I am glad that I chose Walden University. I would like to wish my colleagues good luck on a successful future!!!

Blog Assignment: Jobs/Roles in the ECE Community: Internationally

Ronald McDonald House Charities

The Ronald McDonald House Charities provides a place for families to live when they have children that are hospitalized for seriously illness, critically injured or medically fragile as children are being treated at the hospital.  It saves family the expense of paying for a hotel and gas money especially if they live far away.   The treatment may last a day, a month, or even longer.  It's a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. Families are stronger when they are together, which helps in the healing process. By staying at a Ronald McDonald House, parents also can better communicate with their child's medical team and keep up with complicated treatment plans when needed. Website:
