The Perfect Caregiver
Throughout my entire life working with people was something I always enjoyed, especially with younger kids. I believe that being a caregiver or a nanny isn't "watching kids:" you must be fun, encouraging, interactive and engaging. I come from a really big family so being responsible for others was always something I was just used to. I was always the responsible, organized one that nobody had a problem trusting. I am graduating in May from college with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics- yes, I can help with work and homework! Upon my time in college I was elected Vice President of Academic Affairs where I ran campus wide events, community service events, and managed the academics of ninety active sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon. I have made educational activity trips to the nearest Ronald McDonald houses and even spend some of my Tuesday mornings reading to children through the Child and Family Services. I am just finishing up my Clinical Practice as a Middle School Math teacher so having to deal with the everyday battles younger kids face is no problem foreign to me. I am CPR and Greendot certified in which I am trained to be a leader and know what to do in bad social situations. I also take pride in health and fitness which makes me an even bigger fan towards the younger crowd!
