Emily Elam

I am currently working at a Head Start in San Luis Obispo as the lead teacher and I feel that I was completely prepared for this job because of all the knowledge I was given within the program at Mount St. Mary's. I really appreciate this, as it has made the transition into a career smooth and rewarding. I was able to pick up on many aspects of Head Start easily and knew most of the curriculum requirements well because of the training and courses at MSMU. In addition, I feel that I was able to receive a great basis of Child Development that has significantly helped me in graduate school. Although I am learning many in depth aspects of child development at LaVerne, I have been able to know the core concepts well, which has been wonderful to rely on. All of the information and skills that I was taught at the Mount has truly helped me in all aspects of my career thus far.
