Special Needs Care
I have a son with disabilities. So I understand how difficult it can be. I also understand how fragile a child or adult with mental and/or physical disabilities can be as well. He's almost 21 now and after being told by my own family to just hand him over to the state because he was just to much to handle for me. HOWEVER, not for a second did I even entertain that route. I had my breakdowns but NEVER gave up hope that things will get better and he will start to thrive and become and live a more normal life as much as possible. Today he's a happy young adult and thriving to succeed on his own. I'm so glad I didn't let absolutely anyone convince me otherwise. I am a person that can show true compassion, love, and understanding to others even when dealing with my own bumps in the road. I strive to become the best that I can be and will go above and beyond anything to help others and achieve success. Not because I have to or need to but because I want to.

I also currently tutor children and adults. The type of care I give is totally based on each individual's needs. I am always very patient, kind, gentle and loving.

My older brother is developmentally delayed and has had diabetes his whole life.

I have been a volunteer in the Special Olympics, a volunteer at a school district in Minnesota that only caters to students with developmental delays, and a Paraprofessional in St. Vrain School District.

Seeking Work with Special Needs or Main Stream Individuals
I harbor a life long passion for helping people, both adults and children. I've worked with many families, probably about 15 in total. Many of the children were mainstreamed but I've also done a great deal of work with family's who have special needs. I am currently finishing up a Bachelor's Degree and I'm in need of some extra cash, and also, some companionship! During my "regular job" I spend most of my time on the telephone. I enjoy what I do but being behind a telephone all day can get boring. Working with kids provides a breath of fresh air for me. First, I love their approach to life, and the fact that they haven't yet developed all of their inhibitions and fruitless worries about life. Secondly, I love their vibrancy. I think as adults we sometimes lose our ability to stay playful and appreciative of the small things in life. Children provide a nice reminder that its okay to be silly sometimes, and enjoy a moment for no particular reason.
