What job gives you the happiness of seeing a smile on a child 's face, looking into their shining eyes, going through developmental steps together or simply seeing a little human being exploring and achieving new things in their life day by day? Where else can you get more credit for your work than getting a hug or hearing an "I love you " or "I don't want you to go home " by the end of the day? You won't find a better answer than "working with children," which in my opinion is the reason I do work with them.
My name is Steffi and I'm 26 years old. I recently moved to the Cameron area, because my husband who serves in the military had to leave his former duty station in Germany.
I started to work with children when I was 14 years old. It all started with being a staff member at summer camp back in Germany. After that more summer camps, babysitting, volunteer work in daycare centers and church as well as camps for mentally/physically disabled children and young adults followed. Because I loved the times at all those activities so much, it was no question that this was what I wanted to do after school. After I graduated German high school (as you can tell now, I am German), I went four years to college to become a nursery/daycare/preschool teacher. The school/college system in Germany is totally different from the school/college system in the US, that's the reason you can work in different job areas with only one degree. During college I also worked at German preschools, day cares, nursery and an institution for disabled children. After my 4th year in college, I decided to go overseas to be an Au Pair for one year. I have lived with a family in Chicago (children ages 2, 4 and 5, all girls) and a family in New York (ages 7, 9 and 12, one boy and two girls). As my Au Pair year ended I returned back to college in Germany to work on another degree that I canceled before graduation because I had my first child.
After being a stay at home mom for almost 3 years, I would like to go back to my profession and work with children. I am available 24/7; however my son (will be 3 years old in September) is mostly with me except for late evening hours, weekends or when my husband is off work, so I am looking for a family who doesn't mind having a play buddy for their little ones around.
