Early Childhood Studies – a Global Perspective

Exploring the concepts on early childhood studies through the lens of people across the globe

A Message to My Walden Community


The past many months have been a process of transformational collaboration amongst my idea-315561_1280colleagues and instructors at Walden University. The process of acquiring knowledge about
the courses and the people I am interacting with enabled me to engage actively in discussions and exchange of blog posts. As well, my skills to communicate and attitudes towards communication in different settings with a wide range of participants that present their cultures and personalities have significantly improved allowing for mutual understanding and tolerance. Learning to respect, respond and reciprocate to individuals and groups both at Walden and my workplace have widened my knowledge about myself, and the work that I do.

I feel privileged that I was able to connect with people from different cultures. By the time I finish this course, I would have completed bits and pieces of the requirements in nine countries. I had the opportunity to interact with educators and learners in one way or another in some of these places. This experience has truly enriched me in many ways.

I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to all of you who have helped me to become a thank-you-490607_1280better individual and educator in a global world.  It is my hope that I would be able to continue working on my vision and passion to work with and for children through expanding network. Please continue to interact with me through this blog. Let’s keep talking!

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.
