I love working with kids. I have experience working with kids 6 months old through high school in a variety of settings. Most recently I worked at a farm with kids 7-16 years old in small groups and one on one, as well as working with preschoolers from the preschool that was attached to the farm. I also have experience as a babysitter/nanny, summer camp counselor, after school program facilitator, support group facilitator and one on one youth mentoring. Child development is defiantly something I am passionate about. For younger ones I love the Reggio Emilia model which is child centered and focused and gives space for lots of experiential learning and exploration. In general I believe that children are always learning and that that natural curiosity should be encouraged allow them to explore and delve into the world around them.
In my free time I love to spend time outdoors hiking and climbing. I also do ballet and am a painter hoping to one day become a children's book illustrator.
