My name is Hope . I am 21 years old and attend The Ohio State University. I take classes through Newark campus and Columbus campus. I am going into my fourth year of college (I will be doing five years total) and I am a Middle Childhood Education major; my concentrations are language arts and social studies. I just began my first year of the two-year education program. I have a great amount of experience with children of all ages. I babysat neighborhood children and my brother's baseball teammates as they were growing up. I also have three years of experience in education classes and completed two semesters of classroom field experience. I was in a 4th grade classroom and a 5th grade classroom, where I taught lessons and spent quality time with children. Last year I worked as a childcare provider through the YMCA for before and after school care, as well as a summer camp counselor five days a week, 8 hours a day for ages ranging from 6 years old to 13 years old.
