My personal experiences in childcare started when I was very young. Growing up in a family of 5 kids, most people would think it's a field I would stray away from. I started with the basic babysitting for family and friends then as I aged, I frequently volunteered as opportunities arose. Working as a camp counselor for several summers with kids who struggle with medical and mental disabilities and also taking on a few different nannying jobs for families. After graduating high school I started to strive for end goal of a career with children. I'm working full time as a teacher at a early childhood education school (surrounding myself with ages 6 weeks to 6 years) and also striving to become pre med for pediatrics online. I am all up to date with CPR, AED, and first aid training as well. I know this all may seem very resume like. Super tedious and boring, I know. But I promise I'm just trying to ease your mind a little bit (I know leaving your kids with anyone can't be a quick draw). I love music, cooking, movies, outdoors. All the cliches. If I can answer any questions just let me know.
