My name is Aisha. I am currently a Preschool Paraeducator with an Emergency Medical Technician certificate, which includes CPR and AED certificates. I have over 10 years of experience with taking great care of children, which includes newborns to teens. I have worked with children at daycare, the library, the hospital, emergent/life-threatening situations and my own younger sisters. I am planning on becoming a preschool teacher while going to school to pursue a Masters in Occupational Therapy. I am very passionate about helping children reach their greatest potential. I have an amazing imagination! I love playing games, activities, and getting creative with arts and crafts. I love staying active, persistent and patient.
