Meet Christopher

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hello! My name is Christopher and I recently moved to Chicago with my partner from Seattle. We both moved to pursue our respective artistic endeavors; they moved for stand-up comedy and I moved for choreography and dance. I currently work during the day at a daycare center with children ages 2 to 3. My main experience however is working with children who have special needs. I worked as a 1:1 special needs aide at a YMCA for over 6 years where I helped children with social interactions, physical tasks, and making sure they were overall successful and enjoying themselves within the programming. I have a keen eye for knowing what factors set off a child and how to preemptively avoid those situations. I worked with a variety of special needs such as Cerebral Palsy, high and low functioning Autism, and ADHD. I believe every child has the capacity and faculties Read more to enjoy and live a happy healthy life.
