Child Care

My name is Tara. My family and I have lived in the area for two years. I enjoy working with children and have in the past. I would like to continue in the education atmosphere. In addition, I feel that my experiences, education, and, most importantly, my passion for teaching correspond to the job description. Currently I am living in Winter Park, CO and working as the horticulturist at Devil's Thumb Ranch and looking for a permanent position in a teaching environment. Educationally I earned my master's of science degree in August 2006 in horticulture from Michigan State University. My master's thesis focused on sustainable practices to improve the growth and appearance of turfgrass under shaded conditions. In addition, in 2004 I received my bachelor's of science in horticulture from Michigan State University. During my education and professionally I have been involved as a teaching assistant (TA) for many college based introductory classes. As a TA I was responsible for reviewing class descriptions and content, preparing oral lectures and written assignments based upon class content, assisting students with questions or concerns; and preparing tests. In addition I was employed as a tutor in the student athlete department where I tutored athletes in the subjects of English writing and chemistry. Both students were diagnosed with special education needs, thus I have learned the necessary skills of patience and personal teaching techniques for special education students. In addition I have volunteered in the special education department of Douglas County, Colorado where I gained additional experience with special needs students. I have passed the Colorado Department of Education Fingerprint Criminal History test. I am very passionate regarding the knowledge and education of our future. I have the necessary skills of patience, empathy, and determination that is required to teach children. I feel very strongly regarding the preservation and potential of youth and would like to continue my passion full time as the special education paraprofessional. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to learning more about the opportunity.
