Hello, Nobe-L. Still at a crossroads. I have definitely decided on
something to do with education and/or child development. I am
considering early childhood teacher from birth to grade 3 as well now.
I would consider daycare again but I do not know how well I will be
able to support myself on that kind of salary. I know, I keep bugging
you guys and I'm sorry, but I still would like more advice on how to
do this stuff. Advice from blind people who are in any type of
childcare or education. It is just interesting to me. I go to a
disabilities counselor on Tuesday at my college to decide on a major
for January. I'm sorry to bug you guys, but I would just like to know
some things. I guess I need a mentor, so that's why I come here. Can
anyone help?
