My name is Jacqueline L. Montgomery. I was born December 31, 1973 at 11:59 am with 1 second remaining until the New Year. I am the third oldest of five children> my mom had adopted my brother, older sister, became a part of the family when no one wanted to be bothered with her. I am a mother of five beautiful children. One day my mom’s friend stops by the house to check in on my mom. At this time Mrs. Rigsby was the director of Lutheran family Mission. My mom was very ill at the time.
While I was playing with one of my cousins in the yard my mom friend was watching in the back bedroom window and saw how I was taking care of the children. I was not interested in working in a classroom. I wanted to go to school to be a social worker. I felt that the social worker can help each family to get the resources that the families needed to make into in their everyday life. I was especially interested in children who had IEPs. I could fight from day one to get the children the services that they need. I look at it this way: these are the children that will take care of me and my family one day.
After talking with my mother she told me “Baby that is almost the same job as social worker because the teacher does the same distance as the social worker does. You need the teaching experience to work with the children the way that the state requires for the social workers to have. Just try it out and you will see how everything is run. ” I have been working in the field of early childhood education for thirteen years. I have worked other jobs, but there is something that keeps bringing me back to working with children.

I think the best thing about my job is that I can make a difference in the lives of the children. I am able to learn from them and they are able to learn from me. I am proud when a child is happy to succeed in the goals that they want to reach for themselves. I went to be fingerprinted and the first day of work was a challenge because there is so much work you have to remember to do when you have the children at the center. At home when you have the children you do not have to worry about using gloves writing down the last diaper change, when they slept or if you are doing different things with each child.
The parents were very understanding; they would ask how the day was and genuinely felt concerned about what was going on with their children daily actions even though they were in preschool. I see myself in the next couple of years getting my A. A. S. in Pre-school Education and returning to Kendall to obtain my Bachelors Degree in early childhood education. In the next ten years I would like to open and run my own center. My center will help the children as well as their families.
