I am a Utah State University graduate with a Bachelors in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. After spending a great deal of time in many classrooms with large class sizes of primary aged children, I realized that working in the classroom wasn't the best fit for my true passion; I felt that I couldn't have much one-on-one connection with my students due to the class sizes.
I spent time in several classrooms with students ranging from preschool to 2nd grade. I enjoy working with children of this age group; however, I would enjoy working with children of any age. While in these classrooms, I designed and taught lessons that met state teaching standards as well as the needs of my students. I also had the opportunity to create behavioral plans to manage the students I taught. In addition to teaching, I have also spent time as a sitter for the children of family and friends over the years; I really enjoy taking on the responsibility of helping nurture children.
