This past summer, I worked as a cabin leader at Lutherdale Bible Camp in Elkhorn, WI. I was assigned about 9 girls a week, ages ranging anywhere from 5-17. I was responsible for them 24 hours a day throughout the week. I would do the wake up and bedtime duties, along with all the fun camp activities (swimming, outdoor games, climbing tower, arts & crafts, silly songs, etc.) throughout the day.
I've been working with children since I was 12. By the time I was 15, I was the neighborhood babysitter, caring for up to 10 children at a time.
Summer 2011 and summer 2012, I was a nanny for a family I met through church. There were three children, and twice a week I would have five children. We went to baseball games, the zoo, multiple different parks, swimming. But when we stayed home we would do some arts and crafts, games, movie days, anything fun! One of the children was in summer school so I helped with homework when necessary, and I'm a musician so I would help the ones who were in band with practicing.
I have experience with infants and toddlers.
I love working with children, they light up my life. I'm looking for a job in childcare because I know I have what it takes.
