Q. What does professional writing look like in Early Childhood Education?
Early childhood educators communicate with their students, co-workers, parents or caretakers of their students, and members of the community. Learning to communicate professionally contributes to building positive relationships, and instills confidence in you as an educator and in your institution.
Keep these factors in mind when you create emails and other communications in your professional career:
The example email is composed of the following elements:
- Introductory paragraph welcoming the student and family to the new school year
- Paragraph providing the teacher's background and teaching philosophy
- Paragraph describing the learning environment
- Paragraph providing information about what to expect on the first day of school
- Short closing statement welcoming them to your classroom
- Professional name
Before sending any communication, Proofread, Proofread, Proofread!
