I am currently a student at the University of Notre Dame. I am home for the summer. I have had a great deal of child care experience. During high school, I taught Sunday school classes and piano lessons. I've also worked as a Spanish teacher at several elementary and after-school programs.
I also baby-sat for a number of families. After my freshman year of college, I lived and worked at the Finca del Ni o (Farm of the Child) Orphanage in Tujillo-Colon Honduras as a science, math, English, computer skills, public speaking and art teacher. I also helped coach the orphanage's soccer team, leading girl scouts and helping with women's Bible studies in the surrounding mountain villages.
During my sophomore year I worked at a learning center in South Bend, Indiana as the Volunteer Coordinator for the after-school children's programs. I organized meetings, paired Notre Dame students with children and supervised the after-school tutoring program. During the spring I also tutored History and Economics. I filled in for any tutors that were absent for all age groups. Last summer I worked as a nanny for a month before I left for Chile in July to study abroad for the fall semester. During the fall semester I worked at an orphanage run by the Chilean not-for-profit Hogar de Cristo.
I worked in a home for 2 to to 5-year-olds, doing everything from organizing outings for the kids to playing pirates to helping with repairs around the facilities.
