I have only recently returned to the States after spending a year teaching in Asia. In China, I taught science and math at a preschool, working with children from 2 1/2 to 6 years old. My classes typically had 12-18 students and included several children who would have likely been considered special needs individuals in the US. I loved developing science experiments and activities that allowed the children to ask incredible questions. I am driven by curiosity so learning with children is an incredible experience for me. I love being outdoors so I was able to meld science and sports into more active lessons as well.
I have a big family and grew up babysitting for my siblings and cousins. I have experience with most age groups and with multiple child families.
I have accepted a position with the Peace Corps that begins in mid-April 2019. Ideally, I would like something stable that allows me to continue working and learning with children while I am home.
