Hi Karen! My name is Kristen and I am currently a student at Illinois State University. I am 20 years old studying Family and Consumer Sciences education. This major requires many child development classes along with hands-on clinical experiences (working with children in person). I have worked with children ages 3-16, so I am able to work with any age. I will be home this summer in Elk Grove Village and am very interested in working for your family! I am home from school May 10th and go back to school around mid August. I have a lot of experience with toddlers and preschoolers. Aside from babysitting jobs, I have been involved in two different preschool programs throughout my high school and college career. I am very comfortable with children that age and can even design activities for them. (I have a taken a course on toddler/preschooler development!) I am Read more not a smoker, I have my own car, I have a clean criminal background check that I can give you a copy of, and I am up to date on immunizations and have tested negatively for TB. I am very outgoing, bubbly, energetic, and fun. Aside from childcare experience, I have also worked in customer service at a local bakery for five years and have always been complimented on my bubbly personality at work!
