Melanie’s Bio

I am a child at heart. I love to explore this beautiful place we live in and to be in the sunshine. I love the beach and I am an expert swimmer and can help teach any kids needing to learn. I am also an artist, I face paint, I'm very crafty. I love giving kids the opportunity to explore their creativity. I am very organized and can plan fun activities as well as help tidy up when needed. I have experience working with all ages. I have worked in schools for many years, I've been a nanny, and I've worked at summer camps. I have been told by many that I have have a gift for working with children. I am an ABA therapist and Registered Behavior Technician, I am trained in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention, CPR and First Aid. I understand that every child is unique, with or without special needs. I have my BA in psychology and am planning to move soon to get my Masters. I am a very honest and joyful person, and I would love to meet any family interested, and help however I can!
