Hello! My history with children is fairly long and great. I started babysitting when I was twelve in Peoria, IL. In my teen years, I worked mostly with children with ages 1 to 3 and some toddlers. In high school, I worked at the summer Fun-n-Fit daycare. I take care of young toddlers, two year olds, kindergarteners, and pre-k children. I have also volunteered at Easter Seals and worked with kids in pool skills therapy sessions. I have experience with down's syndrome children and autistic children. I am a part time private tutor to a second grader with ADHD. I specialize in math and reading skills of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. I am fluent in English and Spanish and have a bit of experience in French and Portuguese. I also know how to read and write in braille. I also have experience with taking care of animals. My certifications Read more include babysitting, first aid, and CPR. I have lots of energy and am a very caring person. My first priority when taking care of children is to ensure they are safe and motivated.
