Hi all-I promise, I will make this as short as possible! :lol: I graduated in May with an M.Ed in Elementary Education (1-6), and have since come to a realization that I should have pursued an ECE master's instead. I have always felt more at ease working with very young children (toddler and preschool age), and find myself becoming more and more interested in learning more about early learning and literacy. Recently I've been looking around for preschool teaching positions and had a working interview at a school. I'm still waiting to hear back regarding the position; I bonded well with the students and it was a great experience overall. If I don't get this position, I'm sure it will be because I have not had a great deal of experience working with this age group. Nevertheless, I know that this path is the one I want to take for my teaching career. So...the question...going forward, what's the best way for me to get into this field? I plan on going through the necessary procedures to get an initial license for ECE in my state, but do I need another masters in ECE? I could use more experience with children at this age group, and am willing to get it...where do I start? Do I need to get a second master's degree, or will taking courses geared towards specific development for this age group be sufficient? Wow...WAY too long here. Any input or advice about the best course of action would be appreciated. Thanks!
