Vice President, Education & Development
Sponsored by Bright Horizons.
If you are considering becoming an early childhood teacher or if you already are working as one, you may not have ever thought about what job you might hold in ten years or more. Many people start working as teachers or assistant teachers because they like children. No matter how you ended up working in the profession, teaching is the place to start, and it might be the job you want to hold for your entire career (and thank goodness for people like you!) But there are other routes you can take once you have spent some time zooming around your busy classroom and have a strong track record in the starting gate. So just how can you shine in your role as a teacher so you can be ready for the next steps in your journey, and what are those next steps? What types of opportunities are out there for ECE professionals?
The presenter of this inspirational webinar, Rachel Robertson, Vice President, Education and Development at Bright Horizons, has herself explored the early childhood journey of a lifetime. From Camp Counselor to Center Director, with detours through positions in advocacy organizations and consulting, Rachel has had an inspiring career built from the ground up. In this webinar she will provide you with insights about how to make the most out of your important teaching experiences and be ready to explore the world beyond the classroom. You will learn about the world of opportunities you might never have realized exist in the early care and education profession.
Join us to discover how to excel now and where to go next. You will learn:
- What you can do right now to excel in your job and position yourself for the future.
- Some of the types of organizations that have histories of hiring early educators and building career lattices for them.
- Some roles or positions that may be possible for you in the future, but you never realized were out there.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
