July 2018 Student Spotlight – Cynthia Christmas

I started my career in early childhood education by helping a friend and I just fell in love with it.  My favorite time of the day to spend with my children is circle time and free play.  Watching the children’s growth, the milestones, and my love and passion for the children motivates me to work with children.  I love my job because EVERY DAY is different and EVERY CHILD is DIFFERENT.  I also love seeing their little minds just absorb everything.  I live in Portland, Oregon.  In my free time, I take online classes, read, travel, and go shopping.

I see myself in the near future owning and operating my own child care center.  I have plans on obtaining my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education and I plan to continue taking classes with CCEI.  I also have plans to receive my CDA credential.  I would recommend CCEI to EVERYONE.  Anybody who is going to further their education should most definitely enroll with CCEI.  I LOVE CCEI!
