I have been working as a babysitter/nanny for 10 years watching children from 3m to 13 years old. In high school, I volunteered at the Carlsbad City Library reading program and at a Bible Study. I also began babysitting for family friends and neighbors, gaining experience babysitting up to four kids at once. At 16 I worked at the city pool and taught swim lessons for the next five years to kids from 3 to 15 years old. After graduating from UCSC in Dec. 2013, I returned to Mira Costa College to earn 12 Early Childhood Education Credits. I joined AmeriCorps in Boston, MA to work at Partners for Youth with Disabilities. I returned to Carlsbad in Jan 2015 and worked as a Special Education Behavioral Interventionist at Vista high school. I returned to Boston Aug. 2015 and worked as a paraprofessional in Cambridge, MA in a pre-k sub-separate classroom for kids with autism. I am attending grad school in Seattle for my masters in Special Education.
