Hi, my name is Maria! I'm 27 years old and am currently pursuing an online degree in Special Education. I have a personal vehicle and a valid driver's license with a clean record if driving is needed for children, as well as CPR training (renewed in March 2020). I've been working as an Instructional Assistant for kindergarten, 6th, and 7th graders for the past 4 years. I've also worked as an Assistant Teacher for students with special needs (at McClintock High School in Tempe, AZ), and was in this position for about 4 months before our location was moved to remote learning due to COVID-19. I've been working with children in various educational and home settings since I started babysitting for family and friends as a teenager, and I absolutely love inspiring young minds! I adhere to a positive reinforcement approach when working with children as I believe it helps to cultivate the most healthy environment. I'd love to chat more, and I can provide references if desired. Thank you!
