My name is Pam Castillo. I have been in the field of education for 24 years now. Although I have taught some levels in grade school, I have spent most of my years teaching children aged two to six years old. I am always amazed by the interactions I have every day with children. In an environment where children feel safe, they are confident to explore and make discoveries. These experiences prepare them for the bigger challenges in the future. I feel privileged to be a part of the learning journey of these young children especially if they still come to see me and reminisce the years we worked together.

  1. Pam, I was amazed at the beginning that someone with 24 years of experience in the EC field would still want to learn more about the field. Your zeal to excel and to make an impact has further motivated me to want to achieve more in order to be able to make an impact in my community. I am thankful for all the insights you shared on the blog as well as on the discussion forum.
    I hope we will continue to be in touch as I know that there is a lot I can learn from your experiences. Thank you for your positive comments and support so far. I wish you the very best in life.

    • Thank you Adebukola, I have gained alot from our interactions as well. I am so happy that you call me Pam. That makes me feel more comfortable. People might think that if a person has been in the field of education for many years, they know enough. I think even with my years of experience, there are still many things to learn from others, even from those who are new in the field. I hope we will stay in touch and continue to learn from each other.


  2. I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all your comments and suggestions in this course. I found them to be very useful and form someone, like you, that has been in the field for a long time, I love finding new resources and new websites. You also have excellent writing skills and I always found myself reading you posts and blogs and thinking, “OK before I start this assignment let me see how Pam responded first.” Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! What’s the next course your taking? I’m taking child development…..maybe I’ll see you there.


    • Kerry, I enjoyed our exhange of ideas as well and I hope this will continue in our next course. I think we will be in the same group again because of our last names. That makes me feel excited. Please continue sharing your professional expereinces. They inspire me in many ways.


  3. Pam , I just wanted to say thank you for all the encouraging words that you would leave for me on my blog. I also have fully enjoyed your colorful insightful blogs. I wish you luck in your continued educational journey
