Meet Jonathan

I can only imagine what searching for childcare as a parent is like during these times. It is much needed but, then again, you don’t want just anyone. I have been taking Covid-19 precautions like social distancing, wearing a mask, and frequently washing my hands seriously. That’s one of the reasons I am searching for a more isolated and less crowded work opportunity. I was originally planning on substitute teaching for the fall and already have all of the training and certification completed through EDUStaff. However, I’m not entirely comfortable being in a classroom right now, especially multiple different classrooms per week – that’s a lot of contact. Anyway, as you may be able to tell from my casual tone, I consider myself to be friendly, easy-going, and flexible. I am currently in my last year at Eastern Michigan University where I am pursuing a degree in elementary education with Read more a concentration in language arts, which means I will be certified to teach K-5 all subjects and 6-8 English Language Arts. I am experienced with care and compassionate companionship; I have been caring for and helping out with my twin brother who has spastic cerebral palsy since I was in middle school. Through the agency that my parents use to care for him, I also have CPR, First Aid, and Recipient Rights training. I have worked at a preschool and engaged in after-school care throughout high school. Kids love my goofiness, genuine interest, and creativity.
