Prior to beginning this journal, review the following articles: Head Start Teacher – Education, Job and Salary Information (Links to an external site.) and What Can I Do With an Early Childhood Education Degree? (Links to an external site.) Additionally, explore the programs available through Ashford University’s College of Education (Links to an external site.)

After reviewing the two articles and the Ashford College of Education web page, spend some time reflecting on where you see yourself after you complete your AA degree. Would you like to go on for your BA? Regardless if you would like to go on, review the Early Childhood BA options and share which would be best for you: BA Child Development (Links to an external site.), BA Early Childhood Development with Differentiated Instruction, (Links to an external site.) BA Early Childhood Education (Links to an external site.), or BA Early Childhood Administration (Links to an external site.).

  • Which of these BA’s sound most interesting to you? Why?
  • Describe your ideal employment option with details surrounding the working conditions, your responsibilities, and the environment.
