I have worked with children of all ages, I am most passionate about helping children, adults, and adolescents with developmental disabilities. I am going to school to become a special education teacher and i am currently working as a paraprofessional in the second highest ranked school district in Pennsylvania. in the past i worked as a teacher's helper for children 0 to 4 years of age. I enjoyed a work study position at Eastern Connecticut State University as a Teacher's aide where i also became certified in tutoring English at a college level. I transferred to Suny Canton where i completed coursework in Early Childhood Education and volunteered as an after-school homework helper at Sanford Middle School. I was a camp counselor for the ARC in 2009 and for Campus Kids in 2010. From camp counselor to homework helper, i have always been involved in helping children reach their educations Read more and life goals. I have done this by assisting these children in developing lasting relationships/friendships, practicing good hygiene, and eating habits. I have taught mnemonic devices to aid children in learning math skills, reading skills etc. I have helped children develop goals and then achieve them. All children virtually want to be loved and cared for. I've enjoyed the best experiences of my life working with children. I feel I was born to teach, tutor, mentor, nurture, and love.
