Avg response < 14 hrs
I have plenty of experience working with infants and toddlers. I am a Spanish native speaker, but also can communicate in English pretty well. In addition to all my cares, I have taught all my charges how to speak the language, showing them the beauty of Spanish through songs, games, and books. Back in my country, I volunteered at a hospital where children suffering from cancer were in need of help and company for few hours a day. They mostly lost their school year, so our mission was to keep them up with their school basic lessons (Spanish, math, science, etc.), so I was trained in basic teaching activities and plans. I love being active, enjoying everything this city has to offer, so I like going to the park, playground, museums, pool, beach, library, everywhere we can learn and have fun at the same time! I have been dancing since I could walk. I love dancing! I am an amateur dancer with some lessons taken. I was performing in the most important festivals and shows around my city, gaining experience in stage performance. In Chicago, I was part of a Dance Center, a dance company dedicated to diffuse Peruvian and dance culture around the city and suburbs. We have been part of many festivals, shows, and parades. I can help your children develop their motor skills, rhythm, or just having fun and dance while listening to Spanish songs. I can combine activities (dance, music, and Spanish) so your child can be very active while learn other language! I like to have a close relationship with the parents, so we can talk over your kids' needs and difficulties during their development and help them together, as a team. I am looking for a long-term position with an easygoing, professional, and well-organized family, who can treat me with respect and accept me as a member of it.
