Thanks for visiting my profile! I have worked with the Chapel Hill/Carrboro YMCA as both a Camp Counselor and Afterschool Staff for about a year now-- so it is safe to say I am experienced with children of all ages, cultures, backgrounds, and upbringings. I also have some experience working with special needs children, for my sister has Angelman's Syndrome and many kids at the YMCA are on the autism spectrum. Some of my favorite things to do with kids include arts & crafts, exploring nature, cooking, and of course, playing tag. There should never be a dull moment in childhood!
