Responsible Adult W/Teaching Experience Available For Part-Time/Full-Time Child Care, Degree In Social Work/Education

I started babysitting in 6th grade. I worked with children of all ages in every area throughout school, including college. After I graduated college, I continued to work with kids. My degree is in Social Work with a minor in Education. I worked at Brehm Prep. School while attending college first as a tutor and sub and then managed a dorm with 12 girls. The kids attending Brehm had learning disabilities and behavior problems. It was fantastic experience for me. I participated in the Big Brother/Big Sister program and also volunteered my time to tutor kids from disadvantaged backgrounds. I spent my last year of college working as the overnight counselor at a shelter for battered women and their children. I spent time with the kids putting them at ease and doing fun things with them to create a normal atmosphere. While living in IL, I taught nursery school for kids ages 1-4 at Kennilworth Union Church. I organized and planned all the activities and projects. Working with infants is especially enjoyable for me! I have also substitute taught for all grades, Pre-K-12 including Special Education. I worked through the park district in Wilmette, IL teaching 3rd graders to cook. Each week we had a different recipe and two hours to complete it! I also have 2 children of my own, ages 23 & 24. Some of my most recent work includes "awake" overnights, caring for a toddler with a seizure disorder and I've also had the pleasure to work with a teen with autism. Last but not least, I have several years of pharmaceutical sales experience which comes in handy in many ways! My hobbies include sewing, reading, designing and making stained glass and fused glass jewelry. I love doing arts and crafts projects with kids, reading, cooking and playing games that are age appropriate. I'm happy to teach any of these things to the kids I work with.
