Early Life and Education
Early life development of children is an incredible journey that will have lasting impacts on their learning capacity, behaviors and physical and mental health. Early childhood education helps children prepare for this lifelong journey by meeting their social, emotional and cognitive needs during this crucial phase.
Early childhood educators understand the significance of young children acquiring vital social, turn-taking and collaboration skills necessary for future learning and development. These abilities will play a crucial role in their progress and success as learners and as individuals.
Erikson’s psychosocial theory forms the cornerstone of early childhood education. This theory seeks to recognize each stage in a child’s development and provide appropriate support, helping students stay on track during early education and school years.
As a student-athlete, Adams faced the formidable task of balancing academics and athletics – something she managed to accomplish within less than three years by maintaining a 3.85 grade point average.
