Hey guys !
I am Olivia Volpe and I am a fourth year Ryerson University student in the Early Childhood Studies. I have had numerous placements all around Toronto, dealing with children the ages of 1-8 years old. I went through a lot of challenges during these placements, with finding activities that are developmentally appropriate for their age group. It has been a great learning curve for me ! Although there are challenges, and it makes me doubt myself and the work I am doing, I now critically reflect upon how experience will help me grow as a person as well as an educator in the near future.
These are my two favourite quotes that I would love to share with you guys:
“The only source of knowledge is experience”
“Experience is the teacher of all things”
