  4. Great opportunity to bring awareness of the role of the Early Childhood Educator in Full Day Kindergarten, especially because you also have your degree in Early Childhood Education. But you haven't even listed the CECE as a reference point or listed that you are also an ECE in your post nominal titles. Inquiry and Play based learning is what Early Childhood Educators are all about. It isn't new to us.
