Experienced Child Care Provider
I have a BA in Educational Studies, and a current Fairfax County Child Care permit.
My teaching experience includes homeschooling, coaching gymnastics, camp counseling, employee training, group training, and tutoring. I am dependable, with more than 10 years' professional experience in project management, account management, and customer service.
In a homeschool year from 2010-2011, my son went from testing well below first grade level in reading at the end of first grade, to testing at a third grade level for reading comprehension. In six weeks in April and May of 2011, he improved over a grade level in math computation. Both of my children thrived in the homeschool environment and activities that were designed around their interests and needs. My younger daughter was finished Kindergarten nearly a year early.
I have experience and training with working with Sensory Integration Disorder and ASD. I also have more than 4 years experience with a special diet called the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, that we implemented as a family for Irritable Bowel Disease, ASD, allergy to corn, and symptoms of Celiac Disease. The diet over time healed and managed symptoms for all of these issues.
In 2011, a separation from my husband led to some major changes in the lives of me and my own children. I am looking for an opportunity to apply some of the things I learned with my own children to benefit the lives of other children and families.
