The early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion struc­ture in Nova Sco­tia needs ex­cel­lent ed­u­ca­tors to help strengthen the over­all sys­tem, and Priyanka Subra­mani has al­ways wanted to be a part of that strength­en­ing process. The Nova Sco­tia Col­lege of Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion made it an easy tran­si­tion for her, open­ing her up to the pos­si­bil­i­ties of bring­ing her strong be­liefs into a real class­room.

Priyanka’s teach­ing ap­proach is that “ev­ery child is born with their own pe­cu­liar in­ter­est and na­ture—we should teach them what they would like, not what we would like.” Priyanka takes this fo­cus into her class­room when she is work­ing with young chil­dren.

“The practicum place­ments helped me put my knowl­edge of the­ory into real prac­tice. This hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence that NSCECE gave me helped me to com­mu­ni­cate and col­lab­o­rate with chil­dren and their fam­i­lies, and to learn how to ob­serve and guide the de­vel­op­ment of chil­dren,” says Priyanka.

NSCECE con­tin­ues to make Priyanka’s jour­ney a seam­less one, and the thought-pro­vok­ing cour­ses she is cur­rently tak­ing help spark the self-rev­e­la­tion and cre­ativ­ity within her. Priyanka is en­hanc­ing her cre­ativ­ity skills, knowl­edge and abil­ity to learn the con­cept of mak­ing teach­ing fun, while cre­at­ing hand­son ex­pe­ri­ences for the chil­dren.

She isn’t afraid to ask ques­tions in class, and be­lieves other stu­dents shouldn’t be, ei­ther. No mat­ter how silly the ques­tion, they can have any doubts clar­i­fied by their peers or fac­ulty. Chil­dren have an enor­mous amount of in­tel­li­gence, and de­serve brave ed­u­ca­tors who en­joy teach­ing, so the chil­dren en­joy learn­ing.
