**CURRENTLY LIVING IN LONE OAK, TX- NO LONGER IN CANYON LAKE, TX**
I began babysitting when I was 13 years old for the couple who lived two doors down; there were 3 children, one of which had cancer. I learned early on how to cope with special needs children through this experience while maintaining equal attention towards all. My younger half brother is also a special needs child - he is paralyzed from the waist down and will most likely be in a wheelchair his entire life. I have had experience through the preschool at my church (5 years), as a counselor at kid's summer camp (4 years), and as a leader at Vacation Bible School (4 years). I recently left my career as a full time sales rep for a very reputable company, to follow my dream of working with children. I am also available most weekends and evenings if given enough of a heads up.
