I have had 3 jobs where I worked with & supported the disabled on a daily basis. I assisted them medically, eating healthy & budgeting, etc. I took both Spanish and German in college. I am not fluent. I figure things out and look up words when needed for communication. I am ready and willing to learn. I am fluent in American sign language. I am very artistic. I love spending time with my family. Family game night is one of my favorites. Currently, I am going to school part time to get my license in esthetics. I have no criminal history. My background check is available. I am reliable, caring, understanding and warmhearted. In the past, I have taken babysitting courses through the state. I am first aid and CPR trained; including newborns/small children. I also have certifications in Behavior Support, Preventing Abuse and Neglect, Basic Oral Heath of NJ Dental Life Line Network, Overview of Developmental Disabilities, Crisis Recognition, Medication Training and Danielle's Law Training. I am passionate about my work. My work usually ends up becoming my family. As far as special needs, it upsets me when people stare. I really want the world to understand that we are all the same. I am part of the campaign not using the "R - word." As far as babysitting, I really don't like sitting around watching TV. I'd much rather play pretend, teach them new things and do arts and crafts. I have so many art supplies. I did want to go to school to become an art therapist, but I chose esthetics/makeup instead. Right now, I am interested in helping families out. I would be happy to talk on the phone, message, meet in person or whatever you would prefer. Don't be afraid to ask me anything! Thanks for reading!
