Hello! My name is Ashton. I am 21 years old, and a senior at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities majoring in Elementary Education, graduating May 2016. Teaching and caring for children has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. My mom started her own in-home daycare business in the lower level of our home after I was born and continued her business until my family built a new home when I was 10 years old. During the first 10 years of my life I grew up around infants and children of all ages and I truly believe the experiences this provided me is where my love of children stems from. I started as a mother's helper when I was 11 years old and was soon babysitting on my own by age 12. Since then I have cared for children of all ages, ranging from infancy to pre-driving age through various volunteer and employment opportunities including:
-Volunteer in peppermint fence preschool (Wayzata district)
-Volunteer at Greenwood elementary (1st and 2nd grade/Wayzata district)
-Volunteer at Forest Elementary (3rd grade/Robinsdale district)
-Volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters (1. 5 years)
-Internship at Greenwood elementary (2nd grade/9 weeks/Wayzata district)
-General education practicum student at Brimhall elementary (2nd grade/13 weeks/Roseville district)
-Special education practicum student at Dowling Elementary (3rd grade/13 weeks/Minneapolis district)
-Swim instructor for children ages 3-13/typical and children with special needs (summer 2011)
-Tutor in Math Center for Educational Purposes (4th grade/4 years/UMN).
-Child care worker at University of Minnesota child development center (16 months-5 years old/1. 5 years).
-Full time summer nanny (5-9 years old/3 years/2012-present)
-And several more!
