Diana’s Bio

I have been around children ever since I can remember. My mother ran a home daycare throughout my childhood and I always helped care for the children. At the age of 10 I started babysitting. By 13, I was volunteering at a local daycare in CT every day after school. When I turned 16 I was officially hired and worked at the same daycare center for just over six years before moving down to New Orleans. I have planned and implemented curriculum for children ages 6 weeks up to 6 years and have experience working with children up to 12 years old.

I graduated from Wheelock College last May with my Bachelor's of Science degree. My bachelor's degree in Human Development has provided me with a rich and diverse educational background for understanding the development of children. My degree in Juvenile Justice & Youth Advocacy has given me an immense amount of experience working with children that could be considered at-risk and taught me techniques for altering their paths. The combination of the two areas of study embodies my views perfectly in a very positive youth development and strength based perspective when it comes to working with children.

Currently, I am in New Orleans serving an AmeriCorps term rebuilding houses with a non-profit organization. While I do love what I am doing, I truly miss having children in my life. Children have always played a major role in my life and I just don't feel complete without them. I am looking for a great family and wonderful children to share my caring and fun energy with.

I have my own, reliable, transportation and a clean driving record. I do not smoke or drink. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I also have experience working with children with medical issues and emotional, physical, and cognitive delays/disabilities. I am a fun, energetic, and knowledgeable person who would love to get to know you and your children.
