I am infant and toddler teacher certified and I worked for five years at a daycare as an Assistant Teacher. I mainly worked with infants and toddlers, but I have also worked with preschoolers. I was a nanny for a 3-year-old girl and her 6-year-old brother for 11 months and I worked for six months as a nanny for three boys ages five, two and an infant, in addition to babysitting for 12 families, before I moved overseas for 10 months from 2013-2014 in order to teach English to children in second to sixth grade. After coming back from overseas, I was the overnight and daytime nanny for a newborn followed by nannying for a 4-month-old girl. I graduated from Wheelock College in 2011, a college known internationally for improving the lives of children and their families. My major was American Studies with a focus on Popular Culture and Representation. I took numerous courses relating to the emotional, physical and psycho-social well-being of children and I took a full year of Human Growth and Development. I also have training in TEFL at Talpiot College of Education. I have worked with children in other contexts than just at a center. I did a six-week internship at a hospital childcare center where I helped to plan educational projects and activities for the older toddlers. In addition, I did a semester-long field placement in a toddler classroom where I observed the cognitive, social-emotional, physical and language development of one focus child and wrote three papers analyzing the child's cognitive and social-emotional development. I greatly enjoy experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, reading and scrap-booking.
