I am a behavior therapist by profession and babysit for a family with a child on the autism spectrum. I have been working with children for the past 10 years and I have a passion for teaching and caring for young children. I love my job and everything it entails though it can be challenging at times the rewards of seeing the children make progress is the best feel in the world and why I love what I do. The teaching strategies used help children to learn faster and follow along with home rules implemented by parents . I would say that I am fun person and a kid a heart which makes working with children easier for me.
