"I have learned how to provide a better space, enriching activities, plan whole units around a child's interest versus just a day to day plan, and to make sure developmentally appropriate toys and diverse toys are provided.  I can become a teacher, or I can become a great teacher by going above and beyond, by tackling harder tasks, by pushing myself.  I have seen what I am truly capable of doing for myself.  I have seen what I have to offer to the field."
