I have had many, diverse jobs that help me qualify for this position. I raised 3 children of my own. I taught preschool to 2 to 4-year-olds. I tutored elementary age children in all subjects. I tutored children with English as Their Second Language and their families, I was for many years a Child Life Specialist at CCHMC so I have worked with many families in many, different ways. Child care would be an extension of this in which I could draw from a vast, experienced, developmentally strong background. I have great respect and innate love for children. I incorporate both gentleness and humor into their experiences I with me. I am mature, responsible, and compassionate. I can work 20-25 hours per week. A job share for someone needing full-time care would also work for me! I am very flexible! I have references upon request.
