I have over 10 years of experience in working with infants, children, and adults with special needs. I'm looking for a position to start A. S. A. P. A little bit of my history: I was born and raised in Santa Maria CA. I enjoy interacting with others. I'm very involved in my local church. Starting this November I will be in charge of a Jr's ministry (ages 8-12) which I am absolutely excited about! I also volunteer my time in feeding the homeless (with my church) and visiting with the elderly at a Marian Extended Care in Santa Maria. I come from a very big family so I've been around infants and children all my life. I have gained experience in working with special education as an Instructional Assistant (for the Santa Barbara County Education Office) and absolutely loved it! It taught me to always think a step ahead and to be very observant of my surroundings. I truly believe children are our life's greatest gift! Our job is to love and nurture them the best we can.

Michelle is very caring for our 2 year old son. She helps with light household cleaning, laundry, and prepares meals. She participates with outside and inside play, does educational activities, and is good with naps. I really appreciate that she spends the last part of her day helping clean, pick-up, and sanitize our home. She is very kind to our son and I feel safe having her in our home. I'm grateful Michelle is able to support our family.
