I have been babysitting since the age of 12. I worked as a camp counselor for 22 children in 2nd grade, and have worked with children from infancy to age 15 during internships at the National Adoption Center and Court Appointed Special Advocates as an advocate for children who were abused and neglected.
My most recent career was a therapeutic staff support for children in the home, school, and community settings. I was responsible for planning activities that would foster positive development. I worked with a team to create rewards and consequence systems that emphasized strengths, and eliminated negative behaviors. I have also taken courses in art and math education and created art projects for children in elementary school.
