Before she gave birth to the first of her three children 12 years ago, Reeve Mora wanted to be a teacher.

“I always say I’m the crazy lady who’s been blessed enough to stay home with her children for the most part,” Mora, 33 of Albuquerque, said in a recent interview as her 3-year-old daughter chatted in the background. “Along the way, I’ve also learned I want to be in early childhood somehow.”

She hopes her participation in a recent pilot internship through the New Mexico Early Childhood Education and Care Department has prepared her for her next goal: pursuing a degree in family studies.
