Working with children and helping them learn and grow is passion of mine! I have a bachelor's in Liberal Studies and will be pursuing my teaching credentials in the future.
I've served as an Americorps member at an after-school program. 2010-2011 was my second year, in which I worked as a Literacy Specialist. I tutored seven students, grades first through sixth, one-on-one to help them enhance their reading, comprehension, and writing skills. I also helped regularly in the after school classes with homework and leading activities. My previous year as an Americorps member, 2009-2010, was working as a tutor and an after-school second grade mentor. I led and supervised a class of 15-25 students in which I coordinated activities, lesson plans, homework help, and created a safe and enjoyable learning environment.
I have worked at the YMCA as a summer camp counselor, worked at a day care for a local church, worked as an avid tutor for middle school students, and have been babysitting since I was 13. I have also worked as a volunteer for a sixth grade outdoor school program as a cabin leader for a week, a first and second grade teacher assistant at a church based youth group class for a year, and continue to volunteer at many community service events through Americorps.
In 2011 I worked for a daycare company as a teacher, for ages infancy through kindergarten. Then I was hired by a mother seeking a nanny through Care.com in the fall for her twin 3-year-old boys and occasionally her newborn twin girls. In 2012 I worked as a nanny for my 3-month-old nephew along with his cousin my 5-month-old son.
As a mother and as a teacher I love children and am always eager to embrace any opportunity where I can work with our youth, help fuel their passions and help make a difference.
