I have always had a passion to work with Children. Children just bring so much Joy and Happiness to our lives. My Experience with Children all started when I was in High School. I would volunteer at local schools and Summer Programs. Once I graduated In 2006 I got a job At a Community Center through Parks and Recreation.
I had many duties as a Recreational Aide which included: planning daily activities, field trips, arts and crafts, events talent shows and more. After the Summer I was one of the selected few chosen to work during the school year. During this time I Mentored, Tutored and Coached Soccer/Basketball. This was also through City of Sacramento Parks and Rec.
In 2009 I had the Opportunity to work at St. Roberts Catholic School for after School Program and summer. My duties consisted of evening activities, tutoring and sometimes assisting with Toddler time. While working for St. Roberts I was also on a Dance Team. I wrote a proposal to request permission to hold a dance clinic for the students K-8. It was approved. I began with classes twice a week. It was such big turnout; I put together a show for families and friends to attend. I received so much positive feedback; I hosted classes during summer camp. And even got another opportunity to put on a second show! In 2010 the school had a budget cut, and unfortunately I was laid off.
After this I just worked my part time jobs and assisted my Mother with her foster Children. Running errands, visits, play dates I was always with the children if not at work. Being around children all the time I was ready to finally have my own.
In Dec. 2011 I gave Birth to My Son. Being a Mommy is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I enjoy EVERY moment watching my son grow up. Every Chance I get am teaching my son new things, going on outings, preparing him for Kindergarten. I've been working as a Personal Banker Since and have been planning to open My own Home Day Care. I'm constantly being requested by Co-Workers, family and Friends to care for their little ones. I treat every Child as if they where my own; with much love, care and attention.
