My name is Alicia. I am 36 years old, & hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from UMASS Boston, where I focused on childhood health concerns and their prevention!
While I attended college I worked in an early child development center & additionally received a teaching certificate that allows me to care for 3 infants alone, 4 toddlers & 13 preschool aged children, all of which I have experience with caring for.
Unfortunately, due to the economy and the loss of my family business, and I have found myself back in school, again. I am currently in school for nursing and plan on focusing in pediatrics; which I wish I'd done in the 1st place! Ha ha!
I love children and have lots of experience working with multiple children of all ages, at one time. I have worked in both home & daycare settings.
I have a medical background, as you can see where I'm in school for nursing, & I will be getting re-certified in both CPR & 1st Aid in August. I'm not taking any classes during the summer, so I have complete flexibility with my schedule over the summer months. Ideally I would like to find a position that would allow me more than just a summer position. A part time position through the school year would be fabulous, as I am not independently wealthy and school is expensive ;-) ha-ha.
I have wonderful references, a good driving record, my own car and plenty of experience! I believe in keeping children physically active, engaging in educational experiences and, of course, enjoying lots of activities! Expect lots of playground trips!
If I sound like a good fit for your family I'd love to hear from you!
