At the age of 65, Jodi Levine will be graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from American Jewish University (AJU). She is proof that it is never too late to pursue your dreams. Jodi decided to take the plunge and apply to AJU's School for Jewish Education and Leadership. She has learned so much about early childhood education, and she has also made lifelong friends. She is grateful for the opportunity to continue her education and to pursue her passion for working with children.
I had no idea what loose parts were before taking my Early Childhood Education class, but I am now a big advocate for them. I have seen firsthand how loose parts play can help children to develop their creativity, problem-solving skills, and fine motor skills. It is also a great way for children to learn about different shapes, sizes, and textures
I also appreciate Dr. Tamar Andrews's passion for Early Childhood Education. She is an excellent teacher who is able to make even the most complex topics seem interesting and relevant. I am always learning new things from her, and I am grateful for her dedication to the field.
