Kelly is my co teacher in an Early Head Start Infant classroom. We work together everyday to care for and teach eight infants. Our students come from families that struggle to meet the demands of their lives. Kelly inspires me everyday to stay positive and upbeat. She takes her position seriously and is very dedicated to her role. But everyday we laugh, sing, dance and play with our young students. We play and explore. Our students know they are loved and cared for consistently. Caring for these infants is not a one man job. Working together as a team is crucial to the success of our room. Without Kelly there by my side I feel i would not be as effective a teacher. She lifts me up,laughs,cries and supports me in so many ways.
