Educated, Compassionate Woman Seeks Care-Giving Work For The Elderly/Physically-Challenged
I am Pauline. I have an MSW and a MA Ed. degree. I have the understanding, compassion and personalized approach that will assist you with your care giving needs. While a student at Penn, I cared for a quadriplegic on alternate weekends. After graduating, I worked as an intercultural practitioner in India, Nepal, Israel, China, Belfast and Canada, running various intercultural programs, and teaching at universities. As my husband and I raised our six children, I completed a doctorate degree in Chinese Language and Culture at Leiden University, worked as a drug and mental illness therapist in Manhattan, headed a PTA, and was a member of various boards and steering committees. When my youngest went off to kindergarten in 2009, I supervised infant care for two years, and then taught preschool music for a year at the local Y. Over the years, I have received recognition for excellent work. I won a NEA inner-city teaching award, as well as an honorable mention Sol Feinstone award for public service. All in all, I have had rich experiences, and get along well with people from all walks of life. I am confident I will make a wonderful caregiver for your loved one.
