I absolutely love working with kids, and have been doing so for years. My interests include anything artistic, and everything quirky. As for experience, I was babysitter for a few families in my hometown with kids ages 5-12, who I babysat for a couple of years before moving to college. I was also a swim instructor, which included interacting with and kids ages 3-13, building my own lesson plans, and figuring out new ways to keep them engaged. Additionally, I'm comfortable with children with special needs, as I've learned about a variety of different disabilities and have created many friendships through a club called Best Buddies (which fosters friendships between special and general education students). To further ease your mind, I've taken multiple First Aid and CPR classes, so I'm trained in handling emergency situations. Overall, interacting with kids has been a huge part of my life for many years, and I would love to continue this with new families!
