Early Childhood Teacher Interested In Babysitting/Nanny Jobs
I recently moved to Cheyenne, WY from Pittsburgh, PA. My husband is stationed at an AFB. We got married in August and moved out here right after. I am eager to find work in the childcare field. Working with children, youth, and families is my absolute passion.
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012 with a B. S. in Applied Developmental Psychology. This program afforded me many opportunities to work with children, youth and families in professional settings. Additionally, it provided me with an extensive knowledge of child development, educational systems, and teaching strategies.
I believe that children learn through play. I strive to provide children with a variety of stimulating and exciting experiences through which to learn about and explore their world.
I have several years of babysitting, tutoring and teaching experience. Most recently I worked as a Lead Teacher in a Toddler Room. As Lead Teacher, my ultimate responsibility was to provide a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate environment for children to learn and explore in.
I also have 3 years of experience as an ESL tutor. All throughout college I tutored with an organization devoted to serving refugee and immigrant families. I provided in-home, after-school tutoring to the same family for 3 years. The family had 4 children ages 2 through 10; I helped them complete homework, improve their English, and took them on many adventures around Pittsburgh. This was truly one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences I have ever had!
My hobbies include cooking, reading, and being active. I love adventure sports; running, backpacking and kayaking are my favorites! I enjoy just being outdoors. Nature is a great classroom!
I welcome the opportunity to share more about these experiences.
