Available start date: February 2019 I am currently a teacher in Chicago Public Schools. I have been fourth and fifth grade teacher for two years. My entire work history has involved caring for children. I began working at a daycare in 2008 and continued in the business for 7 years. I began this career working at an in-home daycare that provided care for children aged 3 months to 12 years. My daily responsibilities included, but were not limited to: diaper changing; toilet training; preparing, serving, and monitoring breakfast, lunch, and snack; preparing and serving bottles to the babies; cleaning the daycare throughout the day to maintain a safe space for children to learn and play, as well as, deep-cleaning the toys at the end of the day; interacting and teaching the children through self-guided discovery. I also worked in a Daycare Center as a Toddler Teacher. Much of the same Read more responsibilities were exhibited. In addition, parental contact and collaboration was a large part of my responsibilities to maintain a well-structured classroom. In both of these positions, art and music were popular activities among the children. Reading was another favored activity that I did often throughout the day. Children were also taught socializing skills through modeling and verbal support. A lot of responsibility is required as a teacher. As the only adult in the classroom, I manage and monitor 30 students at a time. I have established a very structured classroom that allows for student independence, as well as, small group guided instruction. I have high organizational skills and work very closely with parents to provide students with the most opportunities and support.
