There is no such thing as a typical day at work when you are working in the childcare field. My favorite thing about this job. Everyday is different and that is something you cannot find in a lot of fields. Engaging with children everyday is something I never thought I would enjoy as much as I do. I have learned a great deal of patience from this job and have improved on my time management. As far as management goes all I can say is, I really enjoy working with every member on the team. No one is perfect and mistakes will always be made and dealt with accordingly. Everyone has a different leadership style and the military part of my schooling showed me that. I love my co-workers dearly, they are the ones who keep me clocking in everyday, aside from my kids of course. They have taught me a lot and have helped me grow drastically in this field. Everyone has their off days and their lazy days, some more than others, but I have always felt everyone I work with has been loyal to their colleagues. The most enjoyable part of the job is clocking into work knowing that I'm going to make a kids day, knowing that I get to laugh and share moments with children that they will never forget, knowing that everyday I am doing my best to become even better at what I am doing, my drive has no ceiling. The hardest part of my job is knowing that I cannot advance. When I work, I work with a mission and that mission is to move up and become something more to the company, a better asset so to speak. I understand that I do not have a degree and if that was the sole reason it would be respectable, but there are other teacher with degrees who have be stagnant for 6+
years and im not the type to get that comfortable so this is the hardest part of this job for me in its entirety.
