Outside of childcare, I have been a summer camp counselor and supervisor for children ages 7-17, for the last 6 summers. I tutored young bilingual children during my years in college, and interned as a guest English instructor at a private school in northern Spain for 5 months. I recently worked as an assistant teacher at a non-public elementary-aged school for children with emotional and behavioral disturbances. My classroom (ages 4-8) included children with ODD, PTSD, ADHD, ADD, Autism, Bipolar Disorder, and other mood disorders. I currently work at a preschool as an Assistant Teacher in a 3-year-old classroom.
I have advanced Spanish-speaking skills and intermediate American Sign Language skills. I'm a very active and athletic person (I play ice-hockey, softball, and soccer), and was a music student for two years in college (voice, piano, guitar), so I can certainly keep your kids entertained! I'm available most weeknights at 5 p.m. I'm a huge pet lover - especially dogs!!
I and would have no problem taking care of them if you would need me to. My only issues is with cats - I'm allergic!
I am open to full-time childcare if the right situation presents itself. If you are interested in this, please let me know!
