There’s no denying the rapid influx of technology in our world--screens and devices have invaded every corner of our lives whether we like it or not. The preschool classroom included. According to a 2015 Northwestern University survey, more than half of all preschool teachers use tablets in the classroom, a number that doubled from a survey done just two years prior.
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Preschool teacher = superhero in our book! It takes a special talent to do what you do each day. You must be highly organized and creative, with excellent time management and multitasking skills. Not to mention softer skills you have in spades, from an endless well of patience to your obvious respect for young children and their families.

You also need to be actively marketing your daycare center, while at the same time figuring out how to stay connected with your current families. If you’re not taking advantage of technology to tame your to-do list, you’re doing it wrong!
