I have many years of working with and caring for children of all ages. I spent three consecutive summers as a camp counselor, providing essentially 24 hours of consistent and caring support and care with girls ages 7-15. I led hikes, taught arts and crafts projects, and was entrusted with the safety of at least 20 girls, along with the other counselors I worked with. In my last year, I was in charge of the unit, ensuring that the counselors that I supervised were providing quality programming and planning and implementing programs and events that were fun, age appropriate, and intentional for each girl.
During the school year (for three years), I also was the lead teacher for an Americorps program: Jumpstart. There, I led three other teachers as we implemented an early childhood literacy curriculum with children from an preschool. I ensured that the class was run smoothly and that all the children were thriving and learning.
