I am seeking a new opportunity to work with children in a home environment. I have a passion working with kids. I taught kindergarten and first grade for 12 years. I was a nanny for approximately 7 years during summer vacations. I have been tutoring elementary-aged students in reading, writing and math for about 8 years. I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor of Arts, in Early Childhood Education, and I graduated from the University of Phoenix with a Master's of Arts in Educational Counseling. I was born and raised in Arizona. I enjoy reading, arts and crafts, music, dancing, watching movies, working out, and learning. In addition, I am adventurist. I like snorkeling, paddle boarding, zip lining, and sky diving. I am very close to my family. I love the out doors and spending time with my two cats, Zimba and Zahara. I love all animals. I am trustworthy, flexible, and dependable. I will create a loving and safe environment for your child to thrive socially, academically, and mentally.
