Avril’s Bio

Hi! My name is Avril!  BACKGROUND: I am 32 years old and would love to work with your family. A little about me: I have a BA in Art Education that I received in May 2013. Since then I have been solo traveling the world and just returned home to Maine last summer after 7 months in Australia. INTERESTS: I enjoy a wide range of activities especially different art forms. I love pottery, painting, scrapbooking, photography, and craft projects and because of where I was raised I grew to love animals, the outdoors, wildlife, and different forms of recreation. I also love to bake, and of course, I love to travel. EXPERIENCE: I have experience with children ranging in ages from newborn-14 years. I was a camp counselor for 5 and 6 year olds at a summer day camp. Before that I worked as a substitute toddler and preschool teacher, and as an afterschool program counselor for first graders.  After moving to Florida I was employed at a local recreation center and worked with kids K-2 grade and was the Activities Director for all ages at a beach resort.  I was a nanny for numerous families in Massachusetts (primarily for ages newborn through pre-k), even running my own mini summer camp and after school program for kids in the neighborhood. I also have taught art classes to kids ages preK-12.   I couldn't imagine working in another field. I have taken 40 hours of childcare training courses that are offered by the state of Florida along with an Early Child Literacy and Guidance and Discipline module. I am open to household management duties including but not limit to some housework, run errands, and take care of pets if needed. I also have a clean driving record. I hope that you will consider me for a position because I would love to get to know you, your kids, and the rest of your family.  Thanks! *Avril*
