Hi my name is Marie Mendez, and I am going into my 3rd year at CSULB. I really love working with children and The major I’m going to declare is Child Development. Right now i work at an after school day care program at Lowell Elementary School and I work with children from ages 5-10. During the summer I also have another job at a summer camp called Bay Shore Beach Camp and I enjoy it very much, i love the ages of the children. I am also interested in arts which is why i really enjoy my Art 110 class and doing all the fun projects we’ve done like wall art, and Plaster Casting, its a lot of fun. Ive always really enjoyed arts too ever since was little my mom always said i made cool like projects on my own. So i think i want to combine the two together and do something art related with my Child Development major.
I’ve always known I wanted to work with children, my mom is a Kindergarten teacher and she said when I was younger I used to love helping her kids even though I was only 2 years older than them. Next semester I am going to take Preschool Child Introduction Class and also Guiding Young Children. I would have taken these sooner but they were all filled up when it was my turn to register.
