As an early childhood professional I hope to create an anti-bias environment for the children and families that I work with.  I hope to create an environment for families and children so that they know that they all are important.  I want to implement their social identities within the curriculum and planning.  As an early childhood professional, I want to create an environment that is respectful and responsive to the needs of the children and the families. I want to be an advocate for the social rights of children and families, so that they will all be treated the same.  Regardless, of their race, gender, abilities, or cultures all children deserve and should have the same equal rights.  The information and knowledge that I have learned from this course and the previous courses have taught me the value of understanding and promoting diversity within the educational setting.


I would like to thank all of my colleagues for the support that they have given through suggestions and advice as I journey through my professional career.  I would like to thank them for the positive feedback and interaction during blogs and discussion board posts.  I would like to wish all of you good luck as you begin to end your journey at Walden in the next few months.  I wish you all success in your personal and professional goals.  I hope that we all continue to implement the education and knowledge that we have obtained and become effective anti-bias educators.

Good Luck!


  1. Hi Tamieka!
    This delicious learning experience would not be possible without my colleagues sharing their ideas, insights and experiences. I wish you the best as you continue creating an anti-bias education environment that represents the families that will enter your classroom. Thanks for being a great leader and role model!

  2. You've written a wonderful vision statement!
    Best wishes on your continuing anti-bias education journey.
    Greg, from Group 2

  3. Hi Tamieka,
    I really enjoyed your post and your comment about implementing their social identities. We are so lucky to have the experiences and ideas from one another.

  4. Creating an environment for children so that they feel respected is important to their development. Children need to feel that they are a part of their classroom and have adults speak up for them when they cannot speak for themselves. Becoming an early childhood educator is the first step to becoming an advocate for young children. Good luck to you as you continue your journey both professionally and educationally.
