Certified 1st Grade Teacher - Pet Care And Occasional Date Nights!
I am a 1st grade full-time teacher, unfortunately ONLY looking to work date nights or OCCASIONALLY! I am a 2014 university graduate from the Inclusive Early Childhood Education program. I completed my Master's in the Art of Teaching this May. Coming from a large family, I am an active, outgoing, kind, and generous person. I have a mother and father, two brothers, a sister, and a family pet who is a 6-year-old Yorkshire Terrier. I recently adopted my own dog, who is a 7-month-old German Shepard Lab mix! I began babysitting when I was about 12 years old for my younger siblings and relatives. Since then, I've had multiple care giving jobs, including dog sitting and babysitting children, from infants to preteens. I often find myself caring for a 7-year-old black Labrador Retriever. I have babysat for many different periods of time, for children of all different ages, and under different circumstances. I am very comfortable with children, especially from my experience in the classroom. I have now completed two practicums in preschool, one in infant development, third grade, kindergarten, and first grade. I am currently student teaching in Kindergarten and will be moving to a special education preschool classroom in March. If I had to say I have a care giving philosophy, it would be to keep the children learning, active, entertained, and happy in a healthy manner. I usually follow my mother's example of how she raised me along with strategies that I've learned through classroom experience.
