For 10 years, I taught in California in an elementary school setting and provided private tutoring services for children with special needs. I then continued my work with children as a nanny. I am currently seeking part-time work and would like to continue my rewarding work with children.
Being a versatile k-8/special educator, I have enjoyed the opportunity to teach a diverse group of children, including those with ADD/ADHD, autism, speech impairments, non-compliant behavior, learning disabilities, and physical challenges. These experiences have given me the opportunity to grow into a compassionate individual, who takes each student's needs and interests into consideration. The abilities I've learned through teaching correspond well with being a caregiver. One of my greatest capabilities is using my artistic background and teaching fun art to children. I am a believer in hands-on learning and like to incorporate the outdoors whenever possible.
