After these many years involved in ECE, I am actually quite conflicted about my future. While I have always loved my work, it hasn’t always been easy. It hasn’t been without conflict.
Part of me is ready to relax, help to transition the next generation of leadership securely into place.
And yet, my greatest passion – that men will step up to the plate and participate in the lives of children – as fathers, as teachers, as advocates, as professors, as family child care providers – this passion is still burning.
Perhaps I have a future as a professor or mentor. Whatever role I play, male engagement will be a priority, as children need and deserve men in their lives… and men deserve and need children in their lives.
I have enjoyed sharing thoughts with all of you. I have enjoyed hearing the many perspectives from classmates at various stages in their professional development. Thank you for your wisdom. Thank you for your contributions to my expanding anti-bias awareness. Journey on!
