SOCIALLY CONNECT YOUR INNER ECE
Now, show the greater community what you can do!
Social media is a great way to put your creative self out there, and especially if you are an introvert—no problem getting in there and having a great time with the children, but self-promotion to your peers? No so much.
CREATE YOUR OWN ECE PLATFORM where you can let inner creativity shine online.
FIRST TAKE PHOTOS: A battalion of them that show case your activities in action. Then add a few descriptive lines so people have a rounded idea of what you're doing.
THEN CREATE PAGES: Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Google+ Twitter. Put up your favourite art activities, crafts, or circle time stories for people to see. You're making a collection of your best programming ideas.
NEXT CONNECT: Connect your pages with like-minded people so you have a little hub of sharing. Now you not only have a platform that showcases you, you are connected with other ECEs so new ideas can flow.
FINALLY SHOUT OUT: Include one of your pages in your resume. Not only will you show some of your best and most successful activities, you'll show yourself to be innovative and in-tune to the online ECE community.
