Notes

Welcome to the Child Development Pathway!

Thank you for visiting the Child Development Pathway website!  My students call me "Mrs. Arnold," and I teach Child Development and Careers with Children courses.  Students who complete these two classes earn a Child Development Pathway certificate of completion and can use it to successfully compete for internships and paid positions in a variety of areas working with young children.

 

Child Development is a year-long class that includes the study of children from conception to adolescence.  Students will engage in activities about the individual life cycle including prenatal, neonatal, infancy, toddler, preschool and school age stages of development.  Students will also have the opportunity to experience the pregnancy profile and RealCare simulation baby to better understand the high level of responsibility that each stage demands.

 

Careers with Children students will put the knowledge learned in Child Development into practice as they work with preschool and special education classroom students as they lead them in one-on-one, small group, and whole class lessons and activities.  The students will learn the fundamentals of safety, lesson planning, activity development and practice each several days each week.  This "internship-like" experience will be useful in preparing for job and scholarship applications.

 

Additionally, the students are also able to join the Carter chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, a national student-run organization that meets every week in my classroom on Thursdays during lunch.  The officers and members develop their leadership skills by organizing volunteer activities at school and in the community.  Interested students are also able to compete for scholarships and cash prizes in several categories of competitions at regional, state and national conferences.

 

Please contact me if you have any questions, and I look forward to working with you this school year.
