'You have to find the key for each child, give them confidence and make them participate in your project.' That is one of the tips that Julia Resina,in his book Dear teacher, offers early childhood education teachers who are beginning to take their first steps in this important profession.

In this book, Julia Resina has wanted to reflect her experiences as a teacher over 39 years dedicated to teaching, the changes she has experienced in teaching, in schools, in relationships with children and their parents, with anecdotes and revealing the difficulties and pleasures he has experienced during all these years in early childhood education.

The student-teacher relationship has changed a lot in recent times. What has changed in early childhood education?
Students are now more sincere, more determined and express their doubts and problems more and better, with more confidence towards their teachers than a few years ago. However, as a reflection of the society that they are, it may be the lack of respect and appreciation towards the figure of the teacher, which sometimes leads to the demotivation of the teacher.

As for the parents of the students, are they more allies or enemies of the teachers?
From my experience I believe that, in general and depending on the areas, they are more allies; although there are also cases in which parents do not want to see the problem of their children, they agree with everything and blame the teacher for it, without worrying about having prior information, maintaining a dialogue with the teacher.

What should be the role of the teacher in the training of children?
From my point of view, the role of the teacher should be twofold: on the one hand, to gain the trust of parents by talking with them about their children and, on the other hand, helping children to think, reason and sow curiosity in them and the desire to learn, always offering their support.

To what extent are teachers prepared to deal with autistic, hyperactive, and gifted children?
When teachers detect that there is a "special" child in their class, they bring it to the attention of the parents and in the hands of specialists for study and diagnosis. Normally, after the treatment and in agreement with the specialist and the family, the teacher reintegrates the child in the class with his classmates, if that is part of the treatment. This integration work done by the teacher is essential for the child to continue their development without trauma.

What do teachers expect from parents and what do parents expect from teachers?
Teachers expect parents to fulfill their task as first educators and trust and collaborate with them for the good of their child. Parents look to teachers for help and guidance to accomplish this important task and, of course, confidence to solve any problems that arise.

What would you say to the parents of a child who refuses to study?
My advice is that, with all the love and patience that you are capable of, talk to the child and listen to what he has to say. Offering help to overcome the problem is usually better effective than simply punishing. If the problem continues, the parents, after hearing what the teacher advises them, do not rule out taking the child to a specialist to detect if there were any problems; although sometimes it is usually a way of attracting the attention of the child and with dialogue it is usually solved.

What is teaching: a vocation or an apprenticeship?
For me, teaching is a vocation in which you are continuously learning, from students, from colleagues and from the complementary training that the teacher must receive from the Administration.

What is the profile of a good and a bad teacher?
A good teacher who does early childhood education is one who with his love and effort is able to "connect" with the students, encourage their self-esteem and convince them that, with effort, they can achieve what they set out to do. I don't think there are bad teachers, but there are those who believe that their fundamental task is to give the child knowledge.

What advice would you give to early childhood teachers who are just starting out?
My advice is that they love and respect children and thus make each one feel important, always counting on their help and support when needed.

What advice would you give parents to encourage their children to study?
That they really become aware that they are primarily responsible for the education of their children; that they talk a lot with them and of course, that they collaborate with their teachers and tutors because a three-way task in early childhood education (parents, students and teachers) is much more responsible and fruitful.
