Early learning teacher profile: Dole Ledesma
"When the children see you, and run to you. .. you feel special because they remember you."
I grew up in Manilla, the capital of the Philippines.
Why I love ECE teaching
I love being with children. They make you child-like and you are able to come into their world, and forget your problems when you are with them.
It’s like you are in a different world.
How I got into ECE teaching
I did a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and was working in a bank as a teller in the Philippines, when I decided I wanted to teach.
I resigned to do post-graduate study in early learning. Teaching is a good qualification to have for getting work overseas.
Most rewarding moment
It’s the simple things every day - like suddenly when the children see you, and run to you ... you feel special because they remember you.
