My hair isn't crazy-colored, but I want to do it before I'm "settled" (I'm 18 now. No, I'm not getting married out of high school, I just feel like time is coming down on me to do this since I'll probably be graduating with a bachelor's in 3 years--assuming I do well on my APs). I don't work in a preschool either, but it's something I would like to do for the time being (probably as an AT since I don't have a degree). I don't think it's my life calling, but I enjoy doing it and have experience in teaching and caring for children, as well as curriculum planning, due to my 2 years in child development at high school. Also, I should receive a 90 hour certificate for early childhood education sometime after graduation (hence higher pay). Bottom line is, I daresay I'm at least not unqualified. Maryland is a fairly liberal state, but I can still imagine it being an issue since they have had so little exposure to the world, so weird hair colors would probably lead to increased distraction. I understand each preschool has its own style, but I was wondering what the general trend is, especially in Maryland. Thanks!
