Gloria’s Bio

I graduated from Cal State University, Los Angeles in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art Education.  After graduating I was working full-time as a secretary and assistant designer from 2007 – 2009 for a fashion designer in Los Angeles. From 2009 – 2012 I started working as a part-time Administrative Assistant for a Retail Department Store. On occasions, I would babysit, tutor, house sit and dog sit on any days I wasn’t scheduled for work or scheduled for a short morning shift.
Prior to graduating from college I have worked as a part-time art instructor at an after school program, muralist, tutor, baby sit on occasion, house sit and dog sit whenever needed. I’m very good with toddlers and kids of all ages. I have experience caring for newborns and toddlers (1 month to 12months of age), boys & girls age 1 to 12 years and tutored kids 13 to 16 years of age.
I am currently not working and have been at home for a month now working on my art portfolio to apply for Graduate School and taking a American Sign Language 3 Monday & Wednesday nights and Radiology Technology class on Thursday night in the meantime. I am CPR certified and I have an 8-year-old Chihuahua mixed with miniature pinscher. I do not have any kids since I’m focused on working on my degree.
I speak fluent English. I do understand a little bit of Spanish, but I’m not very fluent in speaking the language. I understand and speak Teo Chew (a dialect of Chinese) and I understand more than I can speak in Khmer (Cambodian). I cannot read or write in any other languages, but English. I am getting a lot better in signing since class has continued and I've been attending some Deaf Meet up Events to practice my signing. 
Before babysitting or pet sitting I usually like to get to know the children or pet in advanced, this is so the children or pets will not be scared the day I show up and will have an idea of who will be watching over them. There is no charge for the advanced visit.
For babies and children of all ages I’d like to know their interest and likes and dislikes and also if they have any allergic reactions to things. I usually have a rule for kids age 6-12 to get their homework done and correct before play or crafts. They do get a 5-minute break to stretch, get a snack and rest their eyes from all the studying. I do encourage kids to read at least 10 pages or more a day from a book or magazine of their choosing. After all is done and put away, I can play a game with them, make and create stuff (origami, jewelry, play doh, make mini sculpture out of sculpey, collage) and draw and paint with them (crayons, color pencils, markers, water colors, tempera paint, acrylic). Also if you have any house rules of your own please let me know so it can be enforced as well.  
As for pet sitting, I take care of dogs, rabbits, gerbils, birds, fishes and retiles (no snakes). I love cats but cannot take care of them due to being allergic to them. I usually care for dogs. Each day the dog/s get fed, walked for an hour twice a day, or taken on a long hike once a day, petted and played with. Also if you have any other things you would like me to do for your pet please let me know.
