Joyous Bond With Special Needs Children
Avg response < 18 hrs
I am a fun-loving caregiver that loves to intertwine education into everyday activities. Recently, I was a para-educator for the special education department with the Walla Walla School District; working with preschool children who had challenges that made learning more difficult. For the three prior years, I was a nanny for one family. Starting with one child (13 months), I continued working for them through the birth of two kids. At the time of their departure from the area, the kids were 4, 2, and 9 months. My husband and I live with our 12-year-old, adopted at age 6 with special needs, on a small farm on the outskirts of town. I have been working with children for over 25 years; a share a special bond with children who have more advanced needs. I also have a background in emergency response, love reading to educate myself, and alpacas.
