10 Years Of Experience Working With Children From 6 Weeks Old - 12 Year Old
In 2006, I began teaching at a childcare facility, while pursuing my Associate's degree in Early Childhood Education. At first, I worked in a classroom as an assistant or as a lead teacher for infants up to prekindergarten, depending on the resources available for that day or week. After working there for a couple of months, I became an assistant/co-teacher in a prekindergarten room (4 - 5-year-old children). Shortly thereafter, I became a lead teacher in a 2 - 3-year-old room. On certain days I would run the morning care program, after care program, and camp during the summer for elementary and middle school aged children. I worked at the facility for 5 years. After leaving there, I took a teaching position at another childcare facility teaching preschool age children. I started as an assistant, but quickly became a lead teacher in a 2 - 3-year-old. I created lesson plans and developed creative activities with a weekly theme. I absolutely love teaching and taking care of children.
