Valarie Cervantes

I am an Education EC-6 major with a certification in ESL. Spring 2019 is when I will complete the academic portion of my degree and I will complete the remaining portion doing student teaching in the Fall of 2019. I have a very small family and wish I had a bigger one. I used to enjoy reading for fun, but since starting school I no longer enjoy it for fun. However, I do occasionally buy a stack of gossip magazines when I want to give my brain a break from learning.

I completely agree that play fosters creative thinking. Alot of times, we as adults try to teach kids the "right way" of doing things instead of letting them explore their ideas and thinking. I think it is important to rememebr that not everything needs to classified as the right or wrong way. Sometimes it is fun just to explore the way things work.
